Along this spectrum of thermoregulatory behavior, the Texas horned lizard (Phrynosoma cornutum
: Phrynosomatidae) is a thermoregulator that maintains its body temperature within a zone ranging from approximately 35-39[degrees]C (Heath, 1965; Prieto and Whitford, 1971).
For instance, the Texas horned lizard (Phrynosoma cornutum
) prefers open habitats (Whiting et al.
