: I lost a baby short horned lizard I had, and found it covered in the little black ants we have around the house I think they are Argentine Ants, but anyway they look as though they attacked the little guy. I have had regular harvester ants in here and they have never been a problem. I have him in a rather large 2 X 4 Cage so he had pleanty of room to get away from offenders. I was shocked to find him covered in these little black ants which I think were drawn in by a dead cricket that was in the cage floor.Have you or anyone out there seen this before???

:Yes Lou it is the Argentine ants. Nasty little buggers! They were drawn by the dead cricket. Always make sure there are no dead food items in the enclosure. You might consider some pest control around the area where the enclosures are kept. The ant swarming behavior was more than the HL could handle. Lester G. Milroy III
