Mammals: black bear, coyotes, bobcats, beavers, muskrats, groundhogs, skunk, raccoon, weasel, deer, grey and red squirrels, and a bunch more I can't think of now.

Birds: bald eagle, cormorants, wood ducks, geese, swans, osprey, cardinals, titmice, nuthatches, mockingbirds, orioles, blue jays and bluebirds, thrashers, finches, grackles, hawks, owls, great blue herons, warblers, wild turkeys, and lots more.

Black and rat snakes, and copperheads.

When I was a kid growing up here in central South Carolina, I used to see bobcats on the regular, and both red and gray fox, crayfishes, bullfrogs, and huge woodpeckers, and hundreds of tadpoles. I don't see any of these things around here today, don't know the last I've seen a tadpole. Today, just deer and a occasional coyote.

I guess you would have to go deep into the woods to find tadpoles these days. I hardly ever see frogs anymore as well.

When my ship was up there in Port Hadlock WA, I saw a pair of bald eagles nesting, and a huge Kingfisher from the fantail of the ship. And the ship was docked at the pier, so I didn't have to go anywhere to see these beautiful creatures in action.

Ha!!! It's very obvious you don't have armadillos in your area. They are vile, disgusting creatures. They create large, messy, smelly, greasy spots on public roads. They try to burrow under houses. They are most often seen running across roads at night and dead on or near roads in the day. I'd gladly send all of our armadillos your way.
