Animals Index Page

The Animals Index Page lists some of the main players
from the point of view of the citizens of the Old West,
be they Native American, Mexican or Anglo.
This section is growing well; Help & comment always welcome.

Arachnids and Insects

Most of these are not our friends…

Birds

Haven’t got to the ones we eat yet…

Fish and others (No page yet)

Think: trout, salmon, bass, perch… clams & crawdads

Mammals

This is a pretty good run at it. Almost all the important Players.
All the furbearers are listed and the meat and hide animals.
Plenty of varmits as well.

Monsters and Supernatural Beings of the Old West

Monsters and Supernatural Beings combs the pages of Old West Daily Reader to find all of the unexplained happenings, sightings of the strange and wonderful, superstition and fear of the unknown that at times manifests in the human mind. We hear about such things from everyone, the Native Americans, the Mexicans and the Anglos. Travelers, explorers, liars and priests are also on the list of eyewitness reporters in some instances. Sometimes/occasionally we get some explanation. Other times, we too, are left to ponder the tale with the eyewitnesses, reporters and storytellers, wondering what it really might have been…

Reptiles and Amphibians

This is kind of a mixed bag, some friends, some not…
but you want to remember that most western snakes eat rodents.
