If you like big hairy spiders, then you will love the tarantula's that we have here in Texas.
They really won't bite you unless seriously intimidated.
The closer to Mexico you get, the bigger the spiders seem to get also.
I saw this little baby in our garage, the other morning. He was small but he already knew how to jump. So I stood back while taking this picture.
As you are driving along the highways you may see some of these critters lying dead along side the road. They can move faster than you think but I guess not fast enough.
I happened to see something move out in the neighbors yard this spring. I got my bins and sure enough it was a small Armadillo. He looked so cute. I just had to run out and get his picture. I am hoping no one else saw it because they would probably shoot it for digging up there lawn.
Of the many Prickly Pear Cacti in Texas, the "Texas Prickly Pear" probably has the prettiest flowers blossoms.
Texas prickly pear often grows to 5' and may be erect or spreading. The pads of the cacti are green or blue green, and round to oval shaped and 4-10" long. Spines are yellow, distinguishing the Texas prickly from other varieties, and occasionally thre are no spines.
Flowers grow 2-5" across, often crowded on the pad. Petal colors vary from masses of yellow to orange flowers, and often an entire range of colors appears on one plant. The fruit is purple when mature and a true prickly pear. Blooms April-May.
They may look pretty but no not touch or you will get your fingers full of pricklys.
Jellyfish stings are a common beach injury. Portuguese men-of-war are the most injurious jellyfish common to Coastal Bend waters. Their ‘‘blue bags” may look pretty, but they sting. Watch your step. Between 30 percent and 40 percent of all jellyfish stings occur after the sea animal has washed up dead. If you find a jellyfish washed up on shore, leave it alone and help out by warning others
There are also American Alligators in south Texas
American alligators normally avoid humans, but they can become a nuisance when they establish territories around people. As human populations in Texas continue to expand, there have been an increased number of encounters between people and alligators. Alligators have been known to prey on pets and must be treated with caution. Alligators can be surprisingly quick on land and are capable of running quickly over short distances.
Texas has many kinds of snakes. Some are venomous and some non-venomous snakes . It is a good idea to keep an eye out for them wherever you are walking on the trails.
