CRITTER: (noun) a living creature or animal

In the book of Genesis 1 we read how God created the Earth. After the earth was created he made the animals of the oceans, the air and land. To paraphrase Genesis 1:25 And God made the Critters of the earth…….and God saw that if was good.

Critters come in all sizes, shapes, and colors. Some are scary and dangerous while others we allow into our home and they become family. Some critters are so small we can not see them while others are as large as a small building. No matter of what they look like or what size they are all of God’s critters live together on Earth. We sometimes run and hide from these critters while other time we stomp on them to hear them crunch.

Below are some fun CRITTER FACTS:

Hummingbirds have so much control that they can fly backwards
Horses and cows sleep while standing up
Rats breed so quickly that in 18 months 2 rats could have created over 1 million offspring (did not need to know that)
The houseflies life span is for only 3 weeks (unless they meet a flyswatter)
The female mosquito is the only one that actually bites humans
Sharks lay the biggest eggs in the world
The Blue Whale can produce the loudest sound of any animals
The Tasmanian Devil is a real animal that lives in Tasmania, Australia.

In the backroads of Texas we have many critters. Some we love such as the roadrunner, the armadillo, and the Longhorn; while others we are not so fond of such as skunks. As you travel the backroads please remember the famous words of Ellie May Clampett, “I love Critters”, and enjoy all these
interesting creatures.

In all things in nature there is something marvelous…….Aristoltle
