Many species of lizard have a remarkable healing abilities. They can lose their tails as a way to escape predators and regenerate the lost body part. In addition, like many reptiles, they shed their skin periodically as they grow. For this reason, several Native American tribes link this animal with healing and renewal. For example, the tribes of the Southwest refer to the horned lizard as Grandpa and associate it with sacred healing powers.
