Being born and raised in the panhandle I remember black-tailed jack rabbits running alongside roads in a foot race against passing cars but a outbreak of Tularemia hit the rabbit populations in my hometown area hard. The rainfall that Texas has experienced this year has yielded quite an outbreak of wildlife. Roads and playas are filled with toads and frogs calling for mates and the black-tailed jack rabbits have once again become a common sight along roads and in the prairie. For the past week we have been camped out in Caprock Canyons State Park where common visitors to our camp sight includes greater roadrunners, bison and black-tailed jack rabbits. This jack rabbit in particular has been making itself quite cozy in our campsite.
