Horned lizard

   The Horned Toad is a lizard with spine-like scales and a stuffy, sluggish body, suggesting that of a toad. It is to be found from western Kansas to California and southward. A grotesque, harmless creature, chiefly of arid districts. There are eleven species, all companions of the cacti—horned lizards, they should be called. None are to exceed six inches in length. Mounted specimens are obtained readily through curio shops.
