Investigate the variety of habitats found in Texas and see how animals have adapted to survive in our diverse state!
Discover the unique features of each land region – 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, meeting live specimens of native species along the way.
From alligators to snakes, and toads to tortoises, get to know the amazing animals who call our great state home!
