Texas Spiny Lizard

I found one of these fellas lounging in my home office. It's pretty creepy looking isn't it? My husband immediately fell in love with it (he also thinks tarantulas are cool). I'd much prefer to admire such creatures from a distance or even a portrait not in such close proximity.
