November Zoom: Re-Horning Texas: An Historical Introduction to Restoring Texas Horned Lizards by Dusty Rhoads

This talk presents the history of the Great Plains — and its dismantling — as it relates to Texas Horned Lizards: their history, ecological needs, adaptations, and their uncertain future. The speaker hopes that such information will equip the average Texan with the appropriate background to know how they can link, increase, improve, and create habitat to make a measurable difference to the prosperity and “comeback” of Texas Horned Lizards.

Bio: Dusty Rhoads is a research biologist who has studied the ecology and conservation of some iconic native Texas reptiles, especially Trans-Pecos Ratsnakes and Texas Horned Lizards. He received his Masters of Science in Biology degree from TCU in 2019, studying how camouflage can inform conservation applications for Texas Horned Lizards. He is the author of The Complete Suboc (2008; ECO Herpetological Publishing) and the author of the forthcoming book Re-Horning Texas (TCU Press, forthcoming title, 2022).
