The blunt nosed leopard lizard
Here's a short but sad story brought to you by Ollie.
I would like to introduce you to the blunt nosed leopard lizard (Gambelia silus). Due to construction and vanishing habitat in San Joaquin Valley located in California, they have become endangered and are now protected by the Federal government. There are approximately 60,000 left and the numbers are dwindling every year.
The blunt nosed leopard lizard are not the only animals being affected. Other animals include the giant kangaroo rat and the riparian brush rabbit.
