Lomas are clay mounds that rise above the surrounding tidal flats and are covered with native Tamaulipan brush, including the locally common Spanish Dagger Yucca. These lomas are a favored habitat of the Ocelot, a federally-listed endangered cat, found in the U. S. only in south Texas. The tidal flats are often covered with shorebirds and waterbirds such as the Reddish Egret. Watch for Aplomado Falcons perched atop the yuccas along this scenic drive.
