HL populations are not rapidly declining as a result of people collecting them. While collection doesn't help, the predominant reason why HL populations are declining are based on the fact that humans are developing, polluting and degrading their habitat. Not that a bunch of yokels are catching HLs!
Nevertheless, i would agree with Dillon's advice to let the HL go (unless you've had it for a couple weeks or a month).

: : I FOUND A HORNED LIZARD TWO DAYS AGO. MY SISTERS AND I LOVE IT COMPLETELY AND WANT TO KEEP IT AS A PET. I FILLED IT'S CONTAINER WITH DIRT, SAND, AND ROCKS FOR A DESERT TYPE HABITAT, AND BUT AN ANT FARM IN THERE WITH IT, ALONG WITH TWO CRICKSTS. I REALLY AM NOT SURE ON HOW ELSE TO TAKE CARE OF IT. I WOULD LIKE ADVICE PLEASE. IT DOESN'T SEEM DEPRESSED OR ANYTHING. HE KEEPS HIS EYES ON US AS IN OBSERVATION. OFTEN IT MAKES CLICKING NOISES. I THINK IT'S A MALE BECAUSE IT'S SO SMALL, BARELY AN INCH AND A HALF. THEN AGAIN, IT MIGHT BE A BABY. WE TOOK IT FROM IT'S FAMILY AND I WANT TO ADD IT TO OURS. E-MAIL ME BACK, PLEASE.

: My advice is LET IT GO. They are hard to keep and if you can it would be best to put it back where you found it. They are really cool, but they won't be around if people keep taking them from the wild and keeping them. Thus most will die off. The best and brightest thing you can do is free it.
