The regal horned lizard is the largest horned lizard in the U.S. It is easily recognized by 4 large horns at the rear of its head. They are often found in the uplands of the Sonoran Desert. They eat mostly ants and are sometimes spotted around ant mounds. When attacked by a predator, they squirt blood from a pore in the eyelid region. The blood is apparently distasteful to canid predators.
Body length: 3 – 4.6 in (7.6 – 11.7 cm)
