:::Jeff, If you have comments, do not interject them into my posting. My experience with HLs is from scientific observation, study in the field and captive study. Your comments and interjection into my post text is very unprofessional, and probably down right rude. Lester G. Milroy III

: Lester,I respect the work you do on horned lizards and the advice you give. I was rude and unprofessional because I think you are rude and unprofessional by always accusing people of breaking the law. Are you a fish and wildlife Agent? Most people including myself do their best not to break any laws and are just looking for advice. I can read down this forum and count at least 20 people ,who were just asking for help, be accused by you of breaking the law. Asking questions so you can help is one thing but unless you work and know exactly what all state laws are you should stop making false accusations. Not one horned lizard is federally threatened or endangered and laws regarding horned lizards vary state by state. Jeff

:Jeff, just where is it that you see me acquising anyone of anything? My questions are to narrow down the possible species of HL that a person has if they do not know themselves! My questions on the ants are also to find out more detailed info as to where the ants are being collected and get a "feel" for what kind of ants are being fed to the HLs! The locality of a person that has HLs aids in finding out what ants are available in the wild as well as the HL they may have, if it is wild caught or bought in the pet trade. I suggest that you get your facts together and stop being a person that shows no scientific process in finding out answers. Questions are the way to find answers and if you cannot figure that out, oh well. If a person has has a horned lizard, I do sometimes question the mode of acquisition because they are protected species. If I worked for F&W or such, I would be out in the field going after folks that collect horned lizards illegally. Do you understand that simple fact? I am a Conservation Biologist and my job is to gather information on species and apply that info to protect that species. Enough said! If you want to discuss it more, call me or email me and we can discuss it. This is a forum to answer questions. Your rude behavior and unprofessional attitude is just that. As for the laws concerning HLs, I am well aware of the Federal, State and CITES laws concerning HLs in all states. That too is part of my job as a Conservation Biologist. The laws are very necessary and I support them! Lester G. Milroy III
