Coast Horned Lizard

(Phrynosoma coronatum)

The coast horned lizard (Phrynosoma coronatum) is a species of phrynosomatid lizard which can be found in Baja California Sur. The old classification included all three current species P. blainvillii, P. cerroense, and P. coronatumas a single species (P. coronatum) ranging from Baja California north to California's Sacramento Valley. It was previously considered to be a widely divergent species with over 6 subspecies in their relatively small range but is now classified as three distinct species. As a defense the lizard can shoot high pressure streams of blood out of its eyes if threatened.
