The original name was Luisiana

And the official crustacean is the crawfish.

Of course the official bird is the Pelican

While the state’s tree is the Bald Cypress.

 

The amphibian is the green frog

The official insect is the honey bee.

The alligator and the black bear

Either one are best to just let them be!
