"These are plants that eat little animals. Place a cricket on the leaf and watch. We are all food everything eats everything else in one way or another, that's how nature is."

I can't seem to not do one of these Tazany drawings if I start one even if I'm trying to do something else. I love this place because it is an exaggerated version of home. With neat animal people based on the local wildlife of Texas , and creatures that are now extinct or are part of local folklore. It is fun to imagine this world and it is usually where I end up if I let my mind wander.


The Big Thicket Park in southeast Texas, has pitcher plant bogs on several of it's trails. The Sundew Trail, located between Woodville and Lumberton is a good place to see four different species of carnivorous plants. Pitcher plant, sundew, butterwort, and blatterwort are native. As well as snakemouth orchids, lady's slipper orchids, arrowhead, and mayappel(American mandrake) are also found in the park. The best time to go is in May or June. Yes the venus flytrap is also in the park, it is not native but someone keeps planting it there. It dose complete the collection of all five kinds of carnivorous plants in one place thought, and that's kinda' cool. The Big Thicket is the least utilised park in American. I think that's a shame because it is really very beautiful. I wish more people could see it.

Ya I get that, most of the time when I start an Anthro I think if an animal but it almost always becomes a thylacine. and then most likely that becomes jace. It's funny. Also the drawing is awesome you never disappoint :)

I'm sure it's stunningly beautiful.  I know things are beautiful where I am, in the spring and summer.

Finally some relief from winter.  :)
The temperature got up to the high 40's where I am.  I was joyed.
