Baby horned lizards hatch at Dallas Zoo

The Dallas Zoo has some tiny, new babies to take care of.

The zoo announced 39 Texas horned lizard babies recently hatched – the first in the zoo’s history.

The horned lizards, also known as horny toads, were once a common site across Texas. But now, the zoo says, they are disappearing.

The horned lizards no longer exist in East and Central Texas and their numbers are small in North Texas as well.

The zoo said the new hatchlings can help ensure one of the state’s most unique animals remains off the extinction list.
