Wild Animals

As I’ve driven the roads of East Texas over the years, I’ve seen a variety of wildlife. Foxes, deer, skunks, and armadillos are the most common. I’ve known coyotes lived in the area but I didn’t see my first one in the wild until last month. Today I saw an even rarer creature, one that isn’t supposed to be living in this part of the state – an ocelot. That’s my guess, anyway. It was clearly a cat – but at least 3 times as big as a house cat. It’s fur was patterned like ocelots I’ve seen in zoos. It crossed the road in front of me on Hwy 155 just north of I-20, so I wasn’t able to stick around and watch it.
