These guys were hanging out on an ant bed and werent running away so my wife and i shot them(with our nikons lol)
very illegal to even catch here..not sure about OK..they are endangered..so please dont.Coolness!
How do they do as pets? Can they be found up my way near Lawton Ok?
I've heard of guys who have started ant colonies specifically for feeding a horned lizard, but short of that...very illegal to even catch here..not sure about OK..they are endangered..so please dont.
pretty much all captured ones die from starvation.
they eat a specific kind of ant and there's no way to provide them in the quantity and frequency they require.
that is sad..bummer they were in bad shape.I'm guessing not.
Either way, it was very irresponsible of them and a sad sight.
agreed.yes they are illegal to keep in captivity. i assume you could claim to own them if they lived on your property lol.
They MUST have harverter ants to survive. They will eat other insects but they MUST have large numbers of HArvestor ants. Our attempt to eliminate fire ants has decimated the harverster ant pops and that probably the main cause of the demise of the horned lizards.
I think they are legal in Nevada. but if you buy them there and bring them to Texas you broke the law. I believe you can get non native horned lizards legally but ...
there are a few places in Texas with vast numbers of them but im not telling on here where they are and i am sure you all understand why.
