That creature is known for being pretty bold day or night and very thick-skinned. The armadillo is, too. :)

I went down Ferry Road in Baytown to check on one of my caches and scared an otter out of the bushes.  It swam a bit under water, then popped up to see what I was.  It was beautiful, but too fast for me to switch my GPSr to photo mode.

We weren't sure if this was a bobcat or a deer but we're going with bobcat since it's more exciting. ;-)  Element series on Addicks Reservoir, between Barker Cypress and Greenhouse.

I saw my first and only skunk in the wild while doing the Elements series.  We watched very carefully which direction it was heading to make sure we didn't have a too close encounter with it.  It was near the furthest cache of the group that we had done that day and I was going to be very irritated if it caused us not to be able to get to a cache and have to come all the way back later.

From the coloring, it looks like a Broad Banded Water Snake (non-poisonous).  It's often mistaken for a cottonmouth.  Better to err on the safe side.

I wasn't sure so I stopped my daughter (who is 4yrs old) from going farther into the woods. I am TERRIFIED of snakes non-poisonous or poisonous!! Lol!

@green-eyed - I can positively identify that as a serpent.

I spotted a hawk eating a pigeon at a cache in Austin yesterday.  He hopped and fluttered away from me as fast as he could while keeping his catch in his talons.  Wish I had my camera with me!

Green-eyed's pic > rat snake. I've seen more of those while caching than any other snake. My wife and I walked up on one that was about 4-1/2 long at my Warriors 040. It's also what I posted a pic of that was climbing the tree near Ft. Worth. I really dislike snakes, but I'm getting where I almost like this type. I see them almost as much as I see other cachers on the trail.

After my wife and I grabbed an FTF last night, we saw a small rat scampering up and down some branches in a tree nearby. I guess we disturbed his late night foraging...
