Texans are filling the Texas State Parks and enjoying time outdoors. Last year, 43 state parks reported 102 heat-related illnesses in humans and pets. Since January 1, 54 heat-related incidents have already been reported, compared to 34 reported by this time last year.
If you grew up in Texas in the 70's then you probably remember these cute little Horned toads. They were common, but now the Texas horned lizard is one of more than 1,300 species of concern in the state.
