Can You See The Dinosaur?

This beautiful fellow is the Mountain Horned Lizard.  He's a new arrival at the store.  Watching him move you can see his ancestors coming through in every move and gesture.  He doesn't require an excessively large habitat, but would enjoy space to climb and explore.  If given the proper environment he will spend most of his time in the upper part of his habitat.  I haven't had a chance to handle him yet but I'm told that they have an overall docile temperament makes them a great option for beginner to intermediate reptile owners.
