the way to tell if the lizard is male or female is through femoral pores.. femoral pores and small bumps (look almost like zits or pin pricks) that line the back legs.. if it has the pores it is a male, if it doesnt have the pores... bare legs.. its female. Rating: 5/5

Inv...those are great lizards. Very tame and even tempered. Be sure to feed it black harvester ants. not the red or purple ones. Mine was an adult female that ate about 325-30 a feeding. Good luck with your critter...You'll love her...

...Also a great book on horned lizards is Introduction to Horned Lizards Of North America by Wade Sherbrooke. It helped me out alot when I had my Phrynosoma Platyrhinos (desert horned)

...Oh, one more thing. 99.9% of females have black spots around their vent. Thats the easiest way of sexing.. Hope that helps. Now I'll stop my rambling.. ;)

If at first you dont suceed then Sky diving is not for you.

Eh, what's so bad about feeding other species of Harvester? And, by "black" are we talking about Pogonomyrmex rugosus Rough Harvester?

No...P. rugosus is still on the "reddish" side. The one I'm talking about looks like the common "house" ant...only larger. I say this is the best becuase it is the most docile. The other species of harvesters are more aggressive...swarming easier...

..In fact I believe it to be the P. Californicus. Since I am in California. But believe me..between the red, red/black, and all black harvesters it is the most docile...

Awesome, Thanks. I've personally fed reds without any trouble, feeding only several ants ayt a time, but good info is good info.
Thanks again.
