LOCAL WILDLIFE
In the Highland Lakes Area

In Central Texas besides the White Tail Deer and the Bald Eagles there are also Armadillos, Wild Turkeys, Foxes, Coyotes, Raccoons, Ringtails, Opossums, Rabbits, Squirrels, Buzzards, and many other kinds of birds.

The tourists always enjoy the armadillos. They can be spotted in the ditches beside the country roads. They are a very unusual animal and one you won't forget seeing.

Ringtails are another unusual animal. It has a head like a fox, a tail like a raccoon and a body like a squirrel. It is a little bigger than a squirrel and from a distance looks like a squirrel with a big striped, fluffy tail. It is nocturnal, but can be seen during the daylight also.

Wild turkeys are plentiful and can be spotted from the highways sometimes. They will occassionally roam the rural neighborhoods, too.
