Horned lizard

Posted by Callan Bentley

Here’s a cute little feller that we spotted in the Green River Basin of Wyoming last week, whilst checking out the Green River Formation oil shales at the White Mountain escarpment, as well as adjacent Boar’s Tusk volcanic neck and distant Killpecker Dunes.

Though sometimes called “horny toads” (I myself am fond of this name), it’s not really a toad. It’s a lizard.
