Texas Nature Trackers: Horned Lizard Facts

Everyone loves horny toads, but for many Texans the fierce-looking yet amiable reptile is only a fond childhood memory. Now, through participation in Texas Horned Lizard Watch, you can take part in an effort to better understand why our official state reptile is doing well in some locations and what factors may have contributed to its decline in other areas.

As a participant in Texas Horned Lizard Watch, you will be "on-the-ground" collecting data and observations about populations of horned lizards in your area, their food sources, their potential predators or competitors, or their habitat characteristics. From young to old, Ph.D. to hobbyist, there's a way for everyone to participate!
