Did you know that the horned lizard (often mistakenly labeled a " horny toad") offers different responses depending upon which type of attacker it meets? What color is a frog? If you - like most people - hought "green" you were mistaken. There is no green in a frog's skin. The blue and yellow pigment in their skin just looks green to our eyes. These are just a few interesting facts learned through research of our desert dwellers. Learn about frogs, toads, snakes, spiders and moths in this episode.
