Overview

From the pages of Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine, thousands of nature lovers have met the gaze of a confrontational roadrunner, seen the endangered red wolf and whooping crane, and gotten a nose-to-snout view of the javelina and razorback. Once again, this full-color volume of photographs by top nature photographers for Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine is available for gift giving and enjoyment by animal lovers of all ages. Mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians of all stripes and spots are here, captured on film and in Texas. Some of the 148 species pictured are extremely rare visitors, such as the jaguar, while others are among the most common or most people-shy, such as the nine-banded armadillo or the ringtail. The book includes a complete introductory text and brief notes on common and scientific names and habitats. Two hundred and thirty-two magnificently reproduced, full-color photographs illustrate the wide variety of Texas wildlife. Frisky baby ringtails, dashing pronghorns, ungainly yet delicately tinted roseate spoonbills, a saucy roadrunner, and a hungry hognosed snake represent but a few of the 150 species pictured in this volume. Common and scientific names for each animal are given as well as brief descriptions of range, habitat, or numbers.
