    The winged, humanoid monsters of Littlefield who allegedly lived in the basement of two elderly spinsters; the phantom of a former cleaner in a brown uniform and the ghostly sounds of children playing in the Rio Grande Plaza Hotel, Laredo; the strange phenomena at the Driskill Hotel, Austin, including the odd sensation experienced by guests who stare at the third floor picture of a child holding flowers; the sounds of happy children heard in the Hamilton Hotel, Laredo, even when no children are near; 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; paranormal phenomena at the Tarpon Inn, Port Aransas, including a bathroom that sometimes has a pink glow; and the alleged hauntings of the historic Excelsior House Hotel in Jefferson, including a light-fingered woman in black with a baby, a perfumed lady, a headless man and a boy who wakes people up to ask whether they want breakfast (it is even claimed that Steven Spielberg had a supernatural experience at the hotel, the guests of which have included Oscar Wilde and Ulysses S Grant, are more weird folklore associated with Texas.

    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 ghostly civil war soldiers of Patterson Road, Houston; the Lake Worth monster, a creature appearing as part man, part goat and part fish; the ghostly nun and the doppelgangers of staff who roam La Posada Hotel, on the site of a former convent, in Laredo; the unexplained phenomena and spectres of the Hotel Lawrence, Dallas, including the ghost of a gambler; appearances of the spiny goat-sucker, the chupacabra; creepy and malevolent black eyed children (Black Eyed Kids or BEKs) in Abilene; supernatural entities at Victoria's Black Swan Inn in San Antonio; and the lady in white who carries a cat in the Marriott Plaza Hotel in San Antonio, are yet more strange folktales of Texas.
