Texas Horned Lizard

Do you see anything?








Here he is:)




When I was a kid we would pick these guys up and play with them.  We called them horny toads and even though they look dangerous, they are not:)  I was told (by who knows) they could spit blood out of their eyes, never saw it happen but I always was careful:)  LOL

I was always fascinated with them because I thought they were tiny dinosaurs.  This little guy lives on our property in Texas and seems very happy there:)


For more information on this fun little guy (or maybe gal:) click HERE!

  10. Wow! I hadn't seen one of these since my kids were little. I use to catch them and play with them when I was little. You just don't see them around anymore. Thank you for sharing (-; brings back childhood memories.

  15. I remember horny toads from when I was little growing up in Michigan -- I thought they were so cool! Now living in southern California I see lizards on our block wall fence often. I have named them Lizzy and Stubby. Stubby lost his tail -- probably to one of my cats!
