13 Stunning Animals You’ll Find Inhabiting The Texas Hill Country

Texas Hill Country is located in central Texas, where sloping hills cover 25 different counties. Thin layers of topsoil cover granite and limestone creating a tall and rugged landscape. 

The hills and caverns of Texas Hill Country are home to to many species of wildlife, including muskrats, turkeys, and tarantula, as well as animals that can only be found in that area. The diverse landscape allow for the deer and antelope to roam freely while wild turkeys gobble their way across the hills.

Coming face to face with these creatures is a regular occurrence when out and about in the hill country. Let’s take a look at some of the wildlife that can be found in these hills.
