Saw this little guy yesterday on Noble Canyon trail near "Devil's Staircase" (at least what I call it)

Only the 2nd horned lizard I've seen in 25+ years in SD.

Imagine my surprise when I checked Dirt Treaders this morning and saw another one!

Gforce, where did you see yours?

I found mine on one of the trails coming down into the Princess Joann neighborhood in Santee. It's been a while since I've seen one.

My wife found this section of backbone way up a desert wash on Saturday, and I am all but certain it is from a bighorn sheep. However, a sheep spine and a human spine are about the same size. Easily differentiated by a trained eye, but mine isn’t. It was obviously old, and on top of untracked sand freshly washed down from the mountains by recent rains. So I noted the location, and illegally carried it out with us to a ranger station for them to have it identified. Why? We were downwash from the last known location of a San Marcos teenager who left his disabled Jeep ten years ago and was never seen again. The rangers were unfamiliar with the case and the location, but I’ve never forgotten about him. Highly unlikely, but still...


So, the rangers said they’d call me, but never did, so I assume a naturalist took one look at it and said “sheep”. Coincidentally, last weekend I was bikepacking at Hapaha Flat and Valley Boy found this one! We decided it looked to be from a sheep’s neck.

Today I looked up this photo, which confirms that the recent one is from a bighorn neck, and the earlier one is probably a lumbar spine section.
