    OT-AZ Related: Regal Horned Lizard

    Regal Horned Lizard Phrynosoma solare

    These guys are out in the early morning. and just before sunset (they are not considered crepuscular).

    While there are multiple species of horned lizards, my area only has three species on a fairly regular basis, Regal horned lizard, Short-horned lizard and Roundtail horned lizard.

    Regal Horned Lizard Phrynosoma solare can be identified by geopraphical area and by several physical characteristics.

    ID tips:On a Regal Horned Lizard Phrynosoma solare the horns should form a continuous crown of graded size around the back of the head; bases of the four central horns in contact or near contact. Check the 'side' of the lizard…any 'fringe'? A single row of scales limits it's identification to one of three species: Regal, short-horned or desert horned. No 'fringe' scales=Roundtail horned lizard. By combining all the different identifying markers, one concludes Regal Horned Lizard Phrynosoma solare on this subject.
