In Reply to: HOW TO KEEP HORNY TOADS(horned lizards) posted by SALLIE_KEEPER on December 15, 2002 at 01:38:26:
:I would very much like to learn how to keep them safely in captivity. These guys are my favorite of any animal. I grew up in California desert trying to catch them. Never very good at it.. I always felt guilty for keeping them...so I only kept for little while and then let them go..
:SO...Where do I start?? I do know the basics..like temp. cage requirements, I know they need ants to stay healthy..BUT what else do I need to learn???
:Where do I find captive breed Horned lizards??
:I know it is possible to breed in captivity..i had a wild pair lay 19 eggs for me once..AND all are on the threatened list..so not interested in illegal animals..
:The first place to start is to read the postings on the forum. The second place to start is to understand that many HL species are protected. The HLs in California require permits to possess. There is a lot to learn and it is not an easy process. You must get the permits necessary to legall have HLs first and then you need to understand the status of the animals in the wild and the need to protect and conserve remaining habitats the support HL populations. When you have the big picture, post again. Lester G. Milroy III
