Texas Wildlife

There are so many different animals here. We have fire ants, giant beetles, scorpions, so many snakes I can't even count and insects I have never seen before. As often as they say armadillos are common here, I have only seen them dead on the side of the road.

I'm becoming accustomed to seeing unusually large animals and insects. They're not kidding when they say, "everything's bigger in Texas."

Here are a few of the things we have encountered in our backyard and I was able to get a picture of.

If anyone knows what kind of snake that is, let me know. It did bite Suki on the nose. It obviously isn't poisonous because she is fine but it sure sent us into panic mode.
