Horned lizards seem to do well on a variety of ants.The ants I use in michigan seem to work well with them, and others around the country have used their "local" ants to a degree with good success.I have found from talking to others that any orange or red ants are not acceptable or suggested for use.But, most black or burgundy and black ants are acceptable.I use black ants now and then, but don't care for them as they are good climbers and really fast and harder to catch, but in a pinch I might get a few hundred or so and feed them.I have also used carpenter ants, which in my opinion are much larger than harvesters, and the HL's readily eat them.Some smaller Hl's prefer smaller ants, there not as intimidating to them and seem to prefer them.The site repto suggested is a good site, has a few picts of ants that I have used.I have even used ants that were frozen as a source of food and thawed and given to the HL's, as some will readily accept them.
