Description

This wildlife status report looks at the the eastern short-horned lizard, which is Alberta's only native lizard species. Scattered populations of these small, well-camouflaged lizards are found on sparsely-vegetated slopes in canyons and coulees in the extreme southeastern parts of the province. Short-horned lizards have been added to the list of species which may be at risk in Alberta. This report is part of the Alberta Wildlife Status Report series, which provides comprehensive summaries of selected wildlife species intended to be useful to those managing populations of species and their habitats, and to help identify species that may be formally designated as endangered or threatened.
