SAN ANTONIO — San Antonio Zoo's project to strengthen the population of Texas horned lizards, or 'horny toads,' is steadily finding success. Fifty Texas horned lizards that hatched this summer, some born on June 18, 'Texas Horned Lizard Day,' have now been released into the wild. Zoo ticket sales, donations, grants, and Texas Parks and Wildlife funds the Texas Horned Lizard Reintroduction Project through the Center for Conservation and Research (CCR) at San Antonio Zoo. Additionally, Fort Worth Zoo and Dallas Zoo are working with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department on releases in Wildlife Management Areas.
