I found one in Stillwater last year. In an apartment complex parking lot, as a matter of fact. I told one of my herpetologist teacher's aides about it and she chastised me for not giving it to the OSU biology/ecology department. You might consider that if you haven't already released it.

Ok, are any of you involved in the collared Lizard study going on at Sooner Lake dam?
We have a group of OSU students, and the professor doing a long term study of collard lizards. The have little paint dots on each to identify them, as well as location markers to show where they found them.
I'd like to see what they have came up with ;)

Sorry about hijacking the thread :(

I haven't seen a horny toad since I was a kid and they were common.
I understand there is a study going on to find out why they are going west?

Sorry, that information is "need to know"






Taymoor could probably hook you up with the right person. Everyone I knew in the department is dead.

When my dad was working as a pumper in the oil field he would catch them and bring them home and turn them loose. A couple of years ago we were moving brush piles and we found a few babies. They were about the size of your thumb. That was really cool

I remember seeing these all over the place when I was a kid but the last time I can recall seeing one in the wild was back in 1997. If you really wanna cause a major shit storm, contact the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and inform them of your finding. Don't be surprised if they come in and shut down every business in the area to protect the habitat.


If you didn't already know, the Texas Horned Lizard which is commonly called the Horny Toad is on the National Endangered Species List and for having one in your possession, you could be fined anywhere from $500-$10,500 for your first offense.
