Rare Texas Cactus Preserved


The brand new Kickapoo Cavern State Park near Del Rio, Texas just opened and you can visit the caverns if you want, but I’ll be checking out the cactus.

At least 15 caves are located in the park, including Kickapoo Cavern, home to the state’s largest “speleotherm,” an eight-story tall column of limestone and the Stuart Bat Cave, roost of an estimated million Mexican Free-tailed Bats.

Oh, well, maybe I’ll check out the caves too.

The park is… home to an endangered cactus, the Tobusch fishhook cactus.
