Texas Horned Lizard
A stocky, short-tailed lizard with several large "horns" protruding from the back of the head. Generally tan, grayish brown or reddish brown, with brown spots on the back. The scales on the limbs, sides and tail are large and pointed, and the head is heavily armored with large scales, some modified to form "horns." They are harmless and never try to bite. They defend themselves by "puffing-up" to look larger, or they can eject a small amount of blood from the inner corners of each eye to confuse a predator.
