Transcript Texas Biodiversity bobcat ocelot jaguarundi) - more than anywhere in North America; 13 species of bats - more than most states in the U.S. Amphibians: more species than in most of the western United States and Canada Reptiles: 67 species, including 22 lizards, 10 turtles (includingendangered sea turtles), and 34 species of snakes - nearly one-third of all snake species in North America. Freshwater Fish: adiverse assemblage of 112 species, many of which are found no farther north. Butterflies: 291 species - 41% of all species north of the Mexican border and more species than in all states except two; 69 species are seen nowhere else in the United States or Canada. Odonates (Dragonflies and Damselflies): Seventy-seven species of odonates have been recorded in the LRGV, including several species that have been seen nowhere else north ofthe Rio Grande. For example, a few weeks ago Bob Behrstock, myself, and others photographed in Santa Ana NWR the first Gynacantha Mexicana in the United States, a Mexican species of dragonfly that, to my knowledge, does not even have a common name yet This is only a rough draft of what will be included in the final report Complete lists of all I the above will be included in the appendices. However, I do believe that this gives you a taste for the unparalleled diversity of the LRGV. The Valley is to Texas what the Everglades are the Florida and the Chirichahuas are to Arizona The LRGV may very well be the most biodiverse region in the contiguous United States, not just our state. I can conceive of no conservation project in this country that is more deserving of our support and efforts. Tim Brush, Mike Quinn, Bob Behrstock, Brad McKinney, and others have contributed to our efforts, and we thank them all for their generosity. Outdoor Nature Club Ornithology Group P.O.
