More Info.

This website contains Horned Lizard information, including: husbandry, photos, movies from those in the HL community, personal experiences, and links to other Horned Lizard sites. There is not much argument that Phrynosoma (Horned Lizards) are a fascinating species, but they are definitely a challenge, even for an experienced herper.

Other Info.
Horned Lizard Conservation Society

The Horned Lizard Conservation Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to protecting horned lizards throughout North America. Our Mission is to document and publicize the values and conservation needs of horned lizards, to promote horned lizard conservation projects and to assist with horned lizard management initiatives throughout their ranges.

Horned Lizards by Eric R. Pianka and Wendy L. Hodges

Horned lizard species are distinct and easily recognized from each other. Arrangement of occipital and temporal horns on the head are enough to distinguish species, but other features such as number of rows of lateral, abdominal fringe scales and dorsal scale patterns are helpful, too.


We have many other species documented in similar fashion which are listed on our home page, in the 8. Links - Species Specific section.

 All our links are carefully checked and quality vetted, to improve your browsing experience.
