Oklahoma State Reptile & Amphibian

Oklahoma State Reptile and Amphibian

The collared lizard was named Oklahoma’s official reptile in 1969. In Oklahoma, it’s popularly called a “mountain boomer.” Apparently, early pioneers thought the colorful lizards they saw basking on rocks were the source of loud calls made by frogs. Collared lizards are actually silent.

Oklahoma shares its state amphibian, the bullfrog, with Missouri and Ohio.
