  • What is this animal?

    My guess would be a Texas Horned Lizard but I can't quite see its tail to be sure.

      Oscar, you done got it, except it's in New Mexico

      The slang term is "horney toads" , they're harmless, their main diet is ants.

      Weird story: I was hiking in the canyon behind us & came upon a horney toad. No big deal normally except for this one's color: it was black, with yellow spikes. I very gently caught him & looked at his belly & it was yellow-orange.

      This was just before digital cameras (yes, I'm old, so there ) so I don't have a pic & yes, I put him back right where he was.

      I haven't seen one in a few years, I hope this is a good sign.

      Of course it could mean that the rattlesnake population is going up.

        Apparently there are 3 kinds of horned lizards in New Mexico, including the Texan.
