Wildlife Observation
When you walk the Refuge trails, you enter one of the few places the endangered ocelot and jaguarundi were known to prowl. Lucky visitors might see coyote and bobcat. Look for fresh diggings left by nine-banded armadillos. Lizards, snakes, and the Texas tortoise bask in summertime heat. Days close with Mexican free-tailed bats wheeling across star-studded skies.
