Hi there. Since you know the identity of your organism, please go ahead and fill in the scientific name field. This allows the spotting to fully enter the database and become complete, letting groups and individuals use the data and find your spotting. It also takes the spotting off the "unidentified" list. Thank you!

Here's a great Project Noah blog entry that explains the spotting process:

Welcome to Project Noah, AprilRojo! What an excellent first spotting! Based on your spotting location, this must be the Texas horned lizard. The state of Texas has 2 other horned lizards but they occur much further to the west. It's super that you were able to witness courtship and breeding, and then capture it to share here with us. We definitely look forward to future wildlife spottings!
