Ants???

Posted by Lexi on August 21, 2002 at 21:32:00:

About a week ago a friend brought me a horned lizard he caught in Texas. He had kept it in a cardboard box for a few days before he got "bored with it" and handed it over to me (I have an Iguana and have been dubbed a 'lizard person').

Right now I have it in a 40 gallon Rubbermaid tub with sand, some desert plants, some rocks for basking, and a small water bowl. The tub is outside on my porch and has direct sunlight for about 8 hours a day.

I've provided large black tree ants, small black ants, crickets, and mealworms and he hasn't eaten any of them.

I think the crickets and mealworms might be too big for him but that doesn't explain why he won't eat the ants. Am I feeding him the wrong kind? Could someone post some pics or descriptions of the kind that he can eat?

I live in Northeast Oklahoma (Bartlesville area).

Thanks,

Lexi
