In Reply to: regal horned lizard: need advice posted by jem on April 30, 2002 at 23:24:18:

: A relative recently acquired a regal horned lizard in AZ. After 5 days, the 3inch critter has not eaten any harvester ants or small crickets. No one wants to see the animal hurt. How long should the attempt at feeding continue feed before releasing? The lizard will drink droplets of water, and has "grabbed" at one ant, but appeared to spit it back out. I read that these guys can go for a couple of weeks with no food. Is this true? (The temp is right, he gets some sun, sand substrate...) Please advise asap. {I was told that it is legal to have up to 4 of these WC lizzies (w/a hunting lic.) -- true?}

:That is true Jem. But the issue is what is best for the Horned Lizard? Stress is your adversary right now, and stress usually wins, believe it or not. Your best bet is to release it back to the wild where it was captured. If, after some serious thought, and getting permits to cover your venture, you decide to keep the HL, let me know and I will help you get set-up. Lester G. Milroy III
