Mountain Horned Lizards have a very prehistoric look about them and this no doubt is why people find them so attractive. They do not require an excessively large habitat, but they do enjoy space to climb and explore. These are mostly arboreal and spend much of their time in the trees so they should be provided with climbing branches. Their overall docile temperament makes them a great option for beginner to intermediate reptile owners.
