Horned Lizards from North Texas Zoos for Nature Release – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

Horned lizards bred by North Texas zoos head to their new home.

On Thursday, 100 cubs from Fort Worth Zoo and more from the Dallas Zoo and Caldwell Zoo at Cape Tyler will be released into the wild.

The young will be released into a wildlife management area west of Llano in a continued effort to restore this endangered species.

Fort Worth Zoo staff examined and weighed each lizard and attached a featherweight harmonic radar tag on Wednesday.

Last week, the zoo incubated its 1,000th Texas lizard, which is the official reptile of the state of Texas.
