I know you might say "What in the world is that?". That was the same question as I had when I saw this poor fellow stuck in a sticky paper one time I was cleaning.
I have never seen anything like this so up-close so I took pleasure in taking photos of it with my phone. Like a little child I was, I was too intrigued that I had to poke it to see if it was still alive.
I screamed....It was still alive!!!
I live here in Arizona for less than a year now. On that period of time, AZ doesn't cease to amaze me with it's interesting wildlife going on around.
I immediately sent this picture to my husband. He told me not to mess with it because I didn't know if it is poisonous or anything.
Because of this circumstance, I plan to go to a wildlife museum here in Tucson to get educated with common desert animals we deal here everyday.
Some said this was a horny-toad lizard, some said it looked like Desert spiny lizard.
Any idea what kind of lizard this is? I hope I didn't scare ya.
