has displaced native ants in large areas of coastal California, is also
contributing to the further decline of increasingly rare coastal
horned lizards says ENS 2/26. Much of lizard's preferred habitat,
sandy coastal areas and chaparral, has already been lost to sprawl and
scientists say that their primary food source, native ants, are now
also threatened - the lizard won't eat the Argentine ants. As a result
"populations of the coastal horned lizard have plummeted in recent
years" and it is now a candidate for ESA and state listing
