Hoping someone can recommend me a good field guide for mammals in Texas. I need it for an assignment (I need to identify 20 species of mammals, either as road kill or random live encounters). I can't go to the zoo and I can only use two examples as domesticated pets (includes feral animals).

Help.

Just wondering if anyone has personal experiences on different authors. I'm seeing ones for David/Schmidly, Kaufman, etc.

Can't help you here m8, but where you at in Texas? Houston area here.

Where in Texas? This state encompasses every kind of biome except arctic tundra. The wildlife is ridiculously diverse

you need to learn the difference between "hey, where can i find" and "can someone recommend me a good one" Googling shit doesn't really tell you which ones are good and which ones suck.

And I wish I could help OP, but I am a Northwest guy.

But I have always liked Audobon stuff. And they actually make an "Ultimate Texas Nature Guide" app for apple products. Otherwise, you are stuck with just their "North America" guides for mammals, butterflies, birds, etc.

Southwest Texas, Maverick county.
I usually take trips on Hwy 277, I-35 (between San Antonio and Laredo), Hwy 57, and Hwy 83.

Part of why I'm asking is for a class project. Prof literally said to stop by any sign of roadkill and identify the species by taking a photo and getting a specimen that is recognizable from photos. I can also use living -wild- animals but no idea what to do other than just picking a direction to walk in and hope for the best.

I need 20 different species of mammals

Thanks for the suggestion/recommendation. I'll see if I luck out on my Android

you need to find boards or carpet or whatever on the ground to lift up and be wearing some good mouse catching gloves.

I don't have any recs for field guides, but see if you can buy or borrow a trailcam to set up somewhere.
Javelina, feral pigs, and coyotes typically don't show up as roadkill but are common enough you should get a picture of them.
