Subject: Blunt-nosed Leopard Lizard Dimensions (inches): 4 x 28 x 10 Medium: Vermont Marble Description: The blunt-nosed leopard lizard was one of the original 14 animals listed in the Endangered Species Act when it became law in 1973. Other animals on that list include the bald eagle and the California condor. Many of the original 14 (and more that have been added since then) are now far better off than they were thanks to this terrific law that is saving our natural heritage. (Ironically, the power of the Endangered Species Act is now endangered.)
Sadly, the blunt-nosed leopard lizard is not one of those original 14 that are better off. It has the misfortune to live only in California's central San Joaquin Valley, 'the food basket of the world.' This valley is also home to approximately 4 million people, and an important oil-producing region. Habitat loss to all these interests has left little space for this very beautiful, 15-inch long lizard.
