Wildlife at Riven Rock Ranch
Sunday, August 14, 2011
Built to seamlessly meld with nature, Riven Rock is buzzing with active wildlife. Even on these steamy summer days, there are plenty of animals to be seen roaming the ranch grounds-you just have to know where to look! During midday, the critters tend to lay low but at dawn and dusk the ranch comes alive. Animals come out from their cool resting places to feed and take a cool sip of water.
Guests sit on their cottage patios and watch the deer walk by, grazing as they go. We have a healthy herd of white tail, a native species, and axis, an exotic species, originally hailing from the Indian subcontinent. This summer we had a number of fawns born on at Riven Rock and some of our guests with small children had a wonderful time watching these small creatures learn to walk and play. Occasionally an armadillo, the quintessential Texas varmint, will rustle through the grass in search of grubs.
Other animals that frequent the property include wild turkeys, foxes and even a beaver! We have a resident beaver building a dam on the Guadalupe River. Add to these a multitude of native bird species and we have quite the menagerie of wild animals. There's really nothing more soothing than sitting outside on one of our patios and watching our native wildlife.
