    The ghostly woman who walks the banks of the Rio Grande in Laredo, looking for the children that she pushed over a cliff into the river; Pecos Bill with his coyote family, his rattlesnake Shake (that served as his lasso) and his true love the catfish-riding Slue-Foot Sue (Neil Armstrong may have been the first MAN to set FOOT on the moon but Sue banged her HEAD on it many years earlier, after being thrown by Bill's appropriately named horse, Widow-Maker); the Lake Worth monster, a creature appearing as part man, part goat and part fish; supernatural entities at Victoria's Black Swan Inn in San Antonio; the three ghosts of the Hotel Galvez and Spa, Galveston, including one that leaves the scent of gardenias in a room; the groaning Enchanted Rock, said to be genuinely magical; and phantoms of the Faust Hotel, New Braunfels, which include a black cat, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Texas.

    The thirty-two benevolent ghosts of the historic Menger Hotel, close to the Alamo in San Antonio, including Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt (who recruited Rough Riders in the Menger Bar), the phantom of rancher Richard King in his former suite (the King Room), chambermaid Sallie White who still meticulously performs her duties in Victorian attire, a bespectacled lady in a blue dress who knits quietly in the lobby, a man in a buckskin jacket and unseen kitchen helpers; ghosts in all of the rooms (including one that still sometimes leaves tips for the maid) at Miss Molly's Hotel bed and breakfast, once a bordello, in Fort Worth; paranormal phenomena at the Tarpon Inn, Port Aransas, including a bathroom that sometimes has a pink glow; creepy and malevolent black eyed children (Black Eyed Kids or BEKs) in Abilene; the emerald-headed serpent, a great deity that inhabits a crystal cave in the Gulf of Mexico but which, according to Native Americans, may be seen from the coast, when it ventures to the surface with a great display of light; appearances of the spiny goat-sucker, the chupacabra; the black eyed boy, presumably a BEK, who terrified a large airman on a military base; the suicidal jumper who is said to still haunt his room at the Omni Austin Hotel; and the ghost of a murdered call girl in the Gunter Hotel, San Antonio, are yet more strange folktales of Texas.
