Giant Horned Lizard Hatching

“Giant horned lizards are extremely rare in North American zoos and they’ve never before been successfully bred in a zoo,” said Los Angeles Zoo Curator of Reptiles and Amphibians Ian Recchio. “This clutch is a milestone event for the L.A. Zoo and zoos across the continent. These lizards will serve as ambassadors for their species and aid in the study of this species.”
