Animal: Horned Lizard, Material: Quartz
This offering is sold.
Horned Lizards (or horny toads) are associated with the Red Ant Medicine Society in Zuni. Interestingly, native harvester red ants are a primary food source for these fascinating and near-endangered lizards. Habitat loss, climate change and other factors are of serious concern to these marvelous reptiles. Melvin Sandoval's smoothly sculpted quartz horned lizard displays the recognizable horn-like head spines. About 2 1/2" long, 1 1/2" wide and 3/4" tall.
