:Jeff - Grubco.com has done nutritional analysis of all insects they sell. While they do not sell ants, they may be able to assist in the location of an adequate lab to perform said analysis, or in the location of existing data/information. Thanks for the link re: the Horned Lizard Book. Also, do you have any idea where I could take my 2 boys to do a bit of herping in the San Diego area and observe Horned Lizards? Below is contact information from the Grubco.com site. Hope this is helpful.

Thanks for the info Greg. Around San Diego I would follow the 78 and head towards non developed areas in other words head east. In the mountain and hill areas where juniper is present and houses aren't you might see a coastal horned lizard. Follow it futher to Borrego Springs in cresote bush flats you might be able to see a desert horned lizard. Follow it even further to ocotillo wells in sandy areas, mudhills, and washes you may be lucky enough to see the flat-tailed horned lizard. May is when horned lizards will be moving around looking for a mate and is probably the best time to observe them. One thing though for the sake of horned lizards existance don't collect them in undisturbed habitats. If you want to keep one take it from a suburb area that is under developement where the horned lizards are going to be destroyed anyway. Only the desert horned lizard is legal for capture in California the others require a permit.
Jeff
