: :These guys ate havester ants as well....
: If they don't what do they eat?
: : What is the common name for this species, where can I buy it, and how much would it cost? Thank you.
: : :Heather, why would you want to by a protected species? Phrynosoma taurus, the Little Bull, is from Mexico and is protected from export and the pet trade. It would cost more to meet the food requirements than you would be willing to pay. Its main food item is not available in the United States and would require FDA permits to import food items that are nonnative to the U.S. Buy a Bearded Dragon. It is much easier to maintain in captivity. Lester G. Milroy III
:They do eat harvester ants. The genus-species of ants they eat are not native to the United States. The importing of ant species not native would be the big problem. There is also the habitat/ecological requirements being a problem. Getting the permits to import Phrynosoma taurus would be very costly. Lester G. Milroy III
