Coast Horned Lizard

I grew up with these guys living in my backyard in southern CA. It is now a sensitive species, but I still come across them from time to time in the field. This one is showing how they flatten out and broaden their backs or "puff up" a bit when they feel threatened. They blend nicely with the soil color and texture as well.
