It just don’t get more Texas than ‘dillos! Nine-banded armadillos are “steered” down the track by guests selected as “jockeys.” Armadillo racing is the purest sport in the world today: unfettered by the unsavory underworld types like pari-mutuel racing; unscathed by strikes, like the NBA, NFL, MLB, and PBA (Bowlers); untouched by ludicrous player salaries, the armadillos race only for joy and earthworms; and unrestricted by huge, expensive tracks like those licensed by the Texas Racing Commission.
Iguana Races and Reptile Display by Peter’s Wildlife
The swamps and bayous of Texas and Louisiana call to mind iconic reptiles: snakes, lizards, and ‘gators. Peter’s reptiles have been a popular feature at the Pearland Crawfish Festival from the beginning. This year, he’ll be bringing out event more of his fascinating, exotic animals. He will also run the first Iguana Races. Although it would have been nice to race ‘gators, w would have needed too big a track and we couldn’t get any riders. The iguanas will race up a wall.
