Coast Horned Lizard
Phyrosoma coronatum

This is one of my favorite animals. The lizard relies on camouflage to protect itself. It is endangered because its food, the Harvester Ant, has been replaced with the Argentine Ant. Urbanization has also reduced the population. What a joy to find one again!
