Commonly called a Horny Toad, this small reptile is actually a lizard. While in considerable decline, this protected species can still be found in strong pockets across the Valley. This lizard's principle food source is the big red harvester ants which create the circular clearings around their nest sites. If these ants are lost, so are the Horned Lizards.
