Texas is a great place for wildlife watchers! This state is one of the few places to see magnificent mammals such as bighorn sheep and elk, along with many interesting animals such as the ringtail and the nine-banded armadillo. While northern river otters play in the lakes and rivers of far eastern Texas, bobcats thrive in nearly all habitats throughout the state. No matter where you may be in Texas, there is a wide variety of mammals to see and enjoy.

- Professional photos, range maps, and track patterns

This second edition includes updated photographs and range maps, expanded information, and even more of Stan’s expert insights.
