Fort Worth Zoo announces horned lizard hatching

July 31, 2017 by  

Appropriately, 37 days prior to the start of Texas Christian University (TCU) football season, 37 Texas horned lizards came out of the shells at the Fort Worth Zoo.

If not already engaged in cross promotion, ad specialties could be a possible joint marketing option for TCU and the zoo. College football fans, who are always looking for a favorable sign, may see the timely hatching of the Texas horned lizards to be an omen for a good TCU Horned Frogs season. Although the zoo’s newest arrivals are lizards rather than frongs, they still somewhat resemble the university’s mascot, except the recently hatched lizards are not purple.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) lists the horned lizards as a threatened species, and the lizards were first successfully breed at the Fort Worth Zoo. According to Chelsea Adler, zoo spokeswoman, over 300 lizards have been hatched there in the last 12 years. Currently, 18 female and 16 male lizards, as well as 90 juvenile lizards, are at the zoo and 94 have been returned to the wild.

The lizards are typically native to West Texas, where they grow from 3.5 to 6 inches on a diet of made up exclusively red ants. For now, however, the baby lizards are roughly the size of a bottlecap. An interesting fact about the Texas horned lizard, as mentioned on the TPWD website, is that as a defense mechanism they can project blood from their eyelids.
