If you're into the idea of trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world seething with the walking dead, you'll be glad to know you live in one of the top three states to survive something like that.

According to travel website Hopper, Texas is the third best state to hide in when or if the dead rise from the grave.

Hopper uses three specific metrics to come to their conclusion: population, supplies, and geography.

The website says Texas gets the bronze medal in survival chances because of the almost 5,000 gun shops, 388 Walmarts, and 16 military bases in the state that could help fend off the legions of the undead.

However, with more than 25 million people in this state, you may worry about the possibility of too many potential zombies. Luckily, Hopper says the population density of 98 people per square mile means you have plenty of space to run.

As for who's ahead of Texas, Hopper says living in California and Florida give you slightly better chances of survival. 

Since the chances of a zombie apocalypse are low, you can instead enjoy your cache of zombie movies and television shows.
