        Hey Steve sounds like your gona be setting up alot of desert cages for all them newcomers.. All the lizards make sure you keep males seperated as they will fight, you can keep one male to several females.. Now the spiny desert lizard are you talking about a Thorny Devil or something else?? And as for the horny toad as we call them they need special ants to survive well and will take other things like wax worms and tiny crickets but stick with the ants.. Harvester Ants are there staple diet..
        You can find them at this link...

        And the desert iggy is a real sweet lizard and they make great first time pets.. They stay small and are very cute..
        Have you found any good info on the other lizards? If not il get ya some good links... Sorry been real busy... :-[ :-[

          Hey Red,

          Yeah they are all captive bred.. They are being givin to me cheap from someone I helped out a few years back when he didn't have money and 4 of his snakes had bad RI. This is his way to get some money into my rescue. He was figuring I could sell these guys for him and keep the money for the rescues. Not sure how well it will work out, but it was a kind offer. He knows I am trying to scrape 4k together to fill my rescue room with 8 more big cages and some food for the rescues. Time will tell if they make more then they cost..LOL

            Hey Baracudda,

            Setting up won't be a big deal. I have about 30 10 gallon tanks just sitting in my basement. And I still have 5 big bags of claen play sand for the tanks. Yeah I told him I wanted atleast a 50/50 split so I can atleast keep two to a cage. Not even sure how many he plans to get me. Should know for sure this next week. I am aware that horn toads eat ants in the wild, but he told me he doesn't feed them ants, he said he would try to get me a food list so I can be prepaired... More work, less money, O Joy..LOL

                Well I did talk to the guy who made the offer. It was offered because I have helped him alot over the past year and he knows the money situation right now is not good, he was doing it as a type of donation to the rescue. To sell them and keep the funds. After todays talk, not sure if he will follow through with the offer. Seems he found a couple of pet shops that offered to buy them..
                O well.. Time will tell.. Wish i would have waited to setup the 10 tanks...LOL

                  those desert spiny lizards are funny. They have wild little personalities and you can keep em in a 10 gallon, but 20 is an ideal size. they eat crickets and will die for wax worms. Kinda funny things and if it doesent wanna get out it will wedge betweeen whatever it can and blow itself up so you cant pull it out lol
