Investigate the variety of habitats in the Lone Star State and meet some of the animals that call Texas home.
Wildlife On Wheels: Texas Wildlife takes a look at the incredible variety of animals found in Texas, how they have adapted to the habitats they live in, and the challenges they face in our state.
Discover each land region and the animals who make their home there – from the humidity of the Gulf Coast, to the arid mountains of West Texas, to the flat plains of Central Texas between.
In such varied climates, how do animals cope with meeting their four basic needs of food, water, shelter, and room to live? Find out as we travel across the state, seeing live specimens of native animals along the way.
From coyotes to crabs, and jaguars to javelinas, meet the amazing animals who call our great state home!
