Leaping Lizard

A new mural created by a local artist and featuring a Texas Horned Lizard on the side of the building at 703 E. Leon Street in Gatesville guides visitors to the Coryell Museum. Known commonly as the Horned Toad or Horny Toad, the Texas Horned Lizard is the official state reptile of Texas and a fitting symbol for the wall as the reptiles, which were once abundant in this area, are seeing a resurgence in areas of the state.
