Phrynosoma.....best not to hand them, as it stresses them and makes them more prone to diseases and to regurgitate valuable resources that at that size they can scarcely afford to lose. LOOK, BUT DON'T TOUCH! They also don't make good pets as 70% of their diet consists of Harvester Ants and they don't thrive without this essential component in their diet. Sep 11, 2014

When I was a little kid (Mid to late '60's) I found one of these at my grandparents house in the Pecos River valley. My father found out I had it in my pocket. He made me turn it loose. Bummed me out. Apr 10, 2018
