: I have a "horney toad" caught in the so. cal. hi desert. It is Round but FLAT belly, horns on head, medium lenght tail, thick at base. Colors grey,orangish,tanish. Very docile nature. The horns point back.It is about 2 in. long and over 1 in. wide through the flat belly.

:Hello again Lisa, You probably have the Desert Horned Lizard, Phrynosoma platyrhinos. But there is a possibility you could have the San Diego Coast Horned Lizard or the California Coast Horned Lizard (Phrynosoma coronatum blainvillei of Phrynosoma coronatum frontale, respectively). I you have the later, there is a problem. The Coast Horned Lizard/s are a protected species and you must get permits from California Fish and Game. The permits are difficult to obtain, though, because of their protected status. If you can give me a better idea as to the locality you found them, I can help a little more. Lester G. Milroy III
