Horned Lizards - Of all the North American lizards, Horned Lizards are the most fearsome-looking and distinctive by virtue of the pointed, protruding "horns" above their eyes. These creations are the closest representation to real horned lizards. When you hold one in your hand, you will believe that it is real. The feeling of holding a horned lizard will stay in your memory forever. All figurines are hand painted and made with pewter. The Texas and California lizards have developed different colorings.
