The Most Dangerous Predator on Padre Island - Padre Island

The Most Dangerous Predator on Padre Island

This is True Wilderness

Signs along the Grasslands Nature Trail advise hikers that Diamondback Rattlesnakes can be encountered in the grassy dunes. We would have loved to have seen one, but didn't. Mosquitos can also be a problem, as well as the brilliant South Texas sun. It may be a good idea to bring sunscreen and bug dope. Also, Seashore literature warns of Portuguese Man-of-war and Sting Rays in the shallow water. None of these things are really a reason for undue concern, but good to be aware of.
