: I have a "horney toad" caught in the so. cal. hi desert. It is Round but FLAT belly, horns on head, medium lenght tail, thick at base. Colors grey,orangish,tanish. Very docile nature. The horns point back.It is about 2 in. long and over 1 in. wide through the flat belly.
These are Coronatum Blainville or Pacific Horned Lizards, they are protected and one should not be in the habit of collecting these. If you live where Lester lives then you probably caught these in the Palmdale Hesperia area. These must be feed ants as part of their diet, the red ones that are big prferably, aslo they will eat wax worms king mealworms and moths spiders and other insects including small crickets. There are Horned lizards that are legal for purchase but these are very specialized reptiles and even experienced reptile handlers have many problems in keeping these animals healthy. I'm sure Lester will respond to you, but you'd really be better off looing at a different type of lizard that this one, if nothing else the feeding ants is costly if you buy them and if you collect them that gets old as well. These lizards can eat 50 to 100 or more ants at a time. Ants are really necessary for prolonged health.
