I saw this short-horned lizard on a recent walk in an Arizona high desert area. Short-horned lizards are small, only about three inches long. They have distinct red spots on their backs and short spines all the way down to their tail. They run around on sand and rocks in Pinyon juniper woodland areas. Ants are their food of choice, although they will also eat grasshoppers, crickets, spiders or beetles.
