very interesting, those horn lizards are so cute
Linda Whitford
50:07
Thanks for the great presentation. Where do you take the sample from?
Miguel Ordeñana

Amazing animal! What can people do to help horned lizards if they don’t necessarily live against horned lizard habitat? Should equestrians and bikers be more aware of their presence? What is the balance between keeping their locations a secret and spreading awareness about their vulnerable situation for the sake of advocacy?
Linda Ginn
53:40
Yes, that is my experience. I saw horned lizards all the time when I was young, but I've never seen one in Griffith Park. :-(
Brian Tomikawa
54:13
I grew up here also but don’t remember the lizards but remember the harvester ants. How many harvester ants did you find in Griffith
Grover McKean
54:29
I recall that these lizards were once sold in pet stores, is that still the case?
Miguel Ordeñana

Sorry on a walk with my rambunctious daughter

It sounds like the Harvester ants are also facing some of the same issues as the lizards… and what can be done for them, because after all… they’re ONLY ants!
Trace
56:08
we knew them as horney toads, saw them growing up
Marian
56:33
Did you look in Runyon Canyon?
Dora Herrera

What are a few of the biggest threats to the wellbeing of this lizard at Griffith Park? (Perhaps you said this already, if so, disregard). Thank you
Mary Button
57:53
Excellent response, Sarah on this delicate issue
Linda Ginn
57:57
LOL, Trace. That's what we called them too. I grew up in Orange County when you could still see why it was called Orange County.
LOPEZ-ARGUETA, KATHERINE

What are yiur thoughts on a breeding program to increase populations?
Kat Halsey
01:05:53
We do have a breeding program at the LA Zoo for giant horned lizards, Phrynosoma asio (Mexican species)
Brian Tomikawa
01:08:13
There are old stories how they squirt blood from their eyes. Is that true?
Heather Sabin
