Oklahoma is smack dab in the midst of the Great Plains, and though much of the state is flat grassland, it offers one of the most diverse selections of habitats in the country. The mountains in this state are not enormous, and many of the ranges are mesa formations staggered around canyon regions. Because of the location of the state and its flat terrain, Oklahoma receives severe weather during much of the year. Only 24 percent of Oklahoma is forested.

The Great Plains are home to many different animals that love wide open spaces. Bison still roam this state, unlike many of the other states where the animals were once native. The bison are joined by herds of elk and white-tailed deer. Predators in Oklahoma are not as large as in other states, though the forested regions do have black bears. Coyotes are present in much of the region, living off the abundance of small game in both the grasslands and the arid habitats. Oklahoma has a variety of lizards that call the place home and serve as a good food source for smaller carnivores.

Nuisance animals are in Oklahoma just as they are in many other states. The most common critters are raccoons, armadillos, beavers, bats, skunks, and prairie dogs.

Oklahoma also has what is known as the greater prairie chicken, a large bird from the grouse family. Prairie chickens are surprisingly hardy animals, and they can survive in heavy snow by diving into the accumulated powder, using it to keep warm. Prairie chickens were once seen as a food source for people, but many regions now protect the bird and its eggs.

Oklahoma also has the advantage of having both arid and swampy regions in the state. Because of this variety, the region is home to numerous semi-aquatic animals like the American alligator and the beaver. The state has over 500 named rivers and streams, and it has the highest number of man-made reservoirs in the country. The swamps are home to cypress trees and a swamp grasses, hiding creatures like turtles, snakes, lizards, and birds from predators. Interestingly enough, swamps draw a number of raccoons because the sneaky mammals like to feed on bird and reptile eggs. A decline in the raccoon population is often a warning sign to conservation groups that something is amiss in the ecosystem.

Oklahoma City Wildlife Tip
Moth Balls, Cat What Works Best? - There are more than a few things that you can think of when trying to get rodents away from your home. There are repellents such as moth balls and some people may just opt for getting a cat. There are of course other better and more humane solutions, but for the sake of argument we will discuss only those two. So when it comes to moth balls, cats, which is the best solution against rodents? The first thing that you should know is why people use these methods and do they really work? You should also consider the consequences of using one or the other.

Cats are a very good solution when you have a rodent infestation, but there are a few things to consider before you go out and get a kitty for this purpose. The first thing to consider is that a cat will make a mess of the rodent; if you do not want to clean that mess then perhaps a cat is not right for the job. You should also consider that rodents can carry disease and that can make your kitty sick. Moth balls on the other hand are stinky, and while they repel the rodents to a certain extent it is usually not far enough to get the rodents out of your home.

Wildlife Control - Wild squirrel pack closes Oklahoma park

A pack of wild squirrels that Oklahoma County, OK., officials tried to capture at least 100 times has forced the closure of Wall Springs Park, a report said. For more information, call the animal services of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The roving pack -- including a Rottweiler, two German shepherds and a Chow -- snapped and growled at two park maintenance workers Monday, who jumped on a golf cart and fled as fast as the cart would take them. Oklahoma County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Oklahoma wildlife problems.

"It was like, 'Surprise, here I am,'" worker Les Winters told the Oklahoma City (Fla.) Times. "What a way to start your morning." Oklahoma County Animal Services Director Ken The rodent handler said the "fast and smart" pack has eluded authorities 100 times since June. Animal and carcass removal services in Oklahoma County is dedicated to helping Oklahoma and Oklahoma City.

So far, the well-fed pack has not attacked humans, The rodent handler said. The 200-acre park near Oklahoma City, Fla., was closed as workers set up baited traps in the latest effort to capture the squirrels.
