Horned lizards are one of the fearsome looking creatures. These spiny creatures look as hungry as anyone when they see a coyote coming near them. They are the popular species of phrynosomatid lizards. Horny toads is another name for these animals. But in reality, they are not toad they are just those lizards roaming around. These species have very distinct features. People believe both humans and Lizards have shared the land for thousands of years.
