If you are not prepared or do not have the money to properly care for the horned lizards I suggest that you rethink getting them. They are not easy to raise. And if you are concerned about feeding them now before you get them I suggest another animal such as a dog or cat. HL do not need to be kept as pets. Most people are not able to ship ants. And shipping a queen is illegal. Again I highly suggest getting a pet you are properly able to care for.
