I would love to see one of these when I'm out one day.
I always feel lucky when I see one. First one was on the PCT going west to climb Wright Mtn., the other was up the south firebreak on Lawlor. So two for the backside of the eastern SGs. This one was the smallest yet, slightly bigger then a quarter. Thanks for the vote.
that does look like the one I saw.
(don't laugh), we used to go out into an area near our home in the San Fernando Valley (a wash) and capture horny toads. They were so cool but our mom always made us take em back.
...just off the dirt road access to Cottonwood Creek Falls, near Pine Valley CA. The one you captured above looks like he'd make a good boss in a video game!
those are rare ... whats insane is that they tear or squirt blood from their eyes when threatened (dont worry, i dont know from experience, just books, lol )
Thank you for posting. In northern
Utah, they're called horny toads.
You can laugh if you want to.
