First Horned Lizard

This was supposed to be posted 5 days ago, but I got lazy, so I've changed the date in the settings (Shh... Don't tell anyone).

I've never found, let alone catch, one of these lizards before, but have always wanted to. This guy was not aggressive in the least and eventually decided to relax and bask in the palm of my hand. When released, he slowly waddled over under the bush where we saw him.
