Status of the short-horned lizard (Phrynosoma hernandesi) in Alberta : update 2004

Description

This wildlife status report looks at the eastern short-horned lizard, 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. The species has been designated as vulnerable in Canada and may be at risk in Alberta. This report was prepared as a review of current information relevant to the determination of the status of this species in Alberta. It 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.
