First time visitors to the region are often delighted with a sighting of perhaps our wildest-looking animal in the Texas Mountains.  We took this photo at the El Paso Zoo, but they live in most corners of the the mountains, grasslands and ranches.  Learn more about the javelina, here.

The Zoo features animals of the Americas, of Africa, and of Asia.  It is a great place to visit, and the staff offers a terrific calendar of special events.

If you'd like to visit birding and wildlife viewing sites in the region, consult the Far West Texas Wildlife Trail, a cooperative effort between Texas Parks and Wildlife and our own Texas Mountain Trail organization.
