It's a pretty small world out here but today riding my bike did a turn around and this is what I saw. A desert horned lizard more commonly known as a horny toad.
This is the first I've seen here. It was on a road that's why I saw it. Just a little guy but impressive none the less. Click on it a take a close look.
There can't be many of these and it seems he's taking a chance. There are a number of predators who would like to make a meal of him.
It's always a treat to see unusual things on a often used route. Only because the speed was slow and even slow on a bike is too fast to see many other things. Walking is the best way to see the most.
