Here's a couple of suggestions:
Quote from: "[url=http://www.npwrc.usgs.gov/resource/othrdata/chekbird/r2/bendmam.htm
mammal checklist[/url]"]Ocelot (Felis pardalis)
A migrant animal from Mexico, it occurs in small numbers in Coahuila, Mexico, and other border states. Species has never been documented in the Trans-Pecos by photograph or specimen. Endangered.

Jaguarundi (Felis Yagouaroundi)
Reports from the park are fairly common but have never been confirmed. The species has never been documented in the Trans-Pecos by either a specimen or photograph. Endangered.

White-nosed Coati (Nasua narica) -- EXTREMELY RARE
A wandering migrant from Northern Mexico, it was occasionally seen in the 1980's but there have been no sightings in the park in recent years.

Mexican Ground Squirrel (Spermophilus mexicanus) -- EXTREMELY RARE
Occurs only at Rio Grande Village. Few recent records. More commonly seen along highways north of the park.

Western Mastiff Bat (Eumops perotis) -- RARE
North America's largest bat. It has been found only near the Rio Grande in the park and is thought to roost in the cliffs of the river canyons and the Sierra del Carmen. Wingspread - 22 inches.

Mexican Long-nosed Bat (Leptonycteris nivalis) -- UNCOMMON
Known in the United States only from the Chisos and Chinati Mountains of the Big Bend area, this Mexican species uses the park only during the summer months. It feeds primarily on the nectar of the century plant. Wingspread - 16 inches. Endangered

I'd really like to put in for the Mexican Ground Squirrel. I especially like the scientific name.

 Como to think of it  :?: ....NO . I had not thought about it,until your mentioning it.

  If I were to choose, I would like to be:

HUAPITI.........Elk :!:

 This is not even spanish for Elk . This is in the indian language of Kikapoo, but in all of Mexico the Elk, is well know for it?s indian name instead for it?s spanish one: Gran Ciervo Americano.
Stay thirsty, my friends.

Slightly different spelling, but that one's on the mammal checklist:
Quote
Elk or Wapiti (Cervus elaphus) -- EXTREMELY RARE
Occasionally seen in the Rosillos Mountains area, the elk are probably wanderers from established herds in the Glass and Del Norte Mountains north of Big Bend National Park. A breeding population is not established in the park.
