    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; 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; the spooky goings on at the St Anthony Hotel, San Antonio, including phantom second-honeymooners who don't know when to stop; the suicidal jumper who is said to still haunt his room at the Omni Austin Hotel; the ghost of a murdered call girl in the Gunter Hotel, San Antonio; the Lake Worth monster, a creature appearing as part man, part goat and part fish; and appearances of the spiny goat-sucker, the chupacabra, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Texas.

    Creepy and malevolent black eyed children (Black Eyed Kids or BEKs) in Abilene; the ghostly nun and the doppelgangers of staff who roam La Posada Hotel, on the site of a former convent, in Laredo; the sounds of happy children heard in the Hamilton Hotel, Laredo, even when no children are near; 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 groaning Enchanted Rock, said to be genuinely magical; the winged, humanoid monsters of Littlefield who allegedly lived in the basement of two elderly spinsters; 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 other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Texas.

    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; strange phenomena at the Emily Morgan Hotel, near the Alamo in San Antonio (the Alamo itself is said by some to be the site of paranormal phenomena); paranormal phenomena at the Tarpon Inn, Port Aransas, including a bathroom that sometimes has a pink glow; the Confederate soldier and the phantom boy nicknamed "Jimmy" who still roam Tremont House hotel in Galveston; supernatural entities at Victoria's Black Swan Inn in San Antonio; the phantom of a former cleaner in a brown uniform and the ghostly sounds of children playing in the Rio Grande Plaza Hotel, Laredo; and the unexplained phenomena and spectres of the Hotel Lawrence, Dallas, including the ghost of a gambler, are more weird folklore associated with Texas.

    The lady in white who carries a cat in the Marriott Plaza Hotel in San Antonio; phantoms of the Faust Hotel, New Braunfels, which include a black cat; the spirits of Texas Tech University in Lubbock, such as the shade of Sarah Morgan (who was killed by a student) in the biology building, the ghost of a bearded and stetsoned professor in Holden Hall, the phantom of a student in the underground tunnels (still trying to sneak into the girls' dormitories) and "George", the harmless spectre of the old President's House; 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; the three ghosts of the Hotel Galvez and Spa, Galveston, including one that leaves the scent of gardenias in a room; the spectral cowboys who, in the hours before dawn, walk in the courtyard of the Y.O. Ranch Hotel, Kerrville; the black eyed boy, presumably a BEK, who terrified a large airman on a military base; the ghostly civil war soldiers of Patterson Road, Houston; and 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, are yet more strange folktales of Texas.
