Biodiversity of Texas

240 participants 4,545 spottings

Texas, being the 2nd largest state in the U.S., consists of diverse landscapes that resemble the American South and Southwest. Contrary to the popular notion that Texas is a desert state, less than 10% of the actual terrain is desert. Coastlines, piney woods, forests, grasslands, rolling plains, rugged hills, swamps, prairies, caves, and the desert and mountains of the Big Bend all describe the diversity of Texas. Within these terrains lives a variety of plant-life and wildlife, some of which is endangered.
