ARROYO DEL TIGRE CHIQUITA. Arroyo del Tigre Chiquita ("Brook of the Small Tiger") rises in southeastern Zapata County half a mile east of the Starr county line (at 26°38' N, 99°03' W) and runs northwest for six miles to its mouth on the International Falcon Reservoir, immediately east of U.S. Highway 83 and one mile southeast of Lopeño (at 26°42' N, 99°06' W). It crosses low-rolling to flat terrain surfaced by shallow to deep sandy and clay loams in which grow scrub brush, grasses, and cacti.
