Found another one this morning. Its was about half the size of the one yesterday and the colors were more vibrant. Pretty cool to see one let alone 2 different ones
What do they taste like?
Maybe they were looking for camel toads.i saw one at my place a couple years ago. before that, its been a long time ago. i was out in the yard one day and a car pulled up and they go "we used to live around here and we were just visiting and we are looking for horny toads, have you seen any?" i said not so much, just one.
thought that was kinda weird.
Not exactly. It is listed as a "species of concern", but it's neither "threatened" nor "endangered". Fed fines do not apply.

There is a statewide closed season on the following reptiles: Texas horned lizard, desert side-blotched lizard, checkered whiptail, American alligator, western chicken turtle, map turtle, wandering garter snake, gulf crayfish snake, alligator snapping turtle, earless lizard and roundtail horned lizard.
Horny toads are gone but those damn quail eating roadrunners are still around. I see them all the time.When I was a kid (grew up in the Macomb/Tecumseh area) we saw horny toads, and roadrunners all the time. Road runners were a daily sight, horny toads were rare, but you saw them. I can't remember the last time I saw a horny toad, late 90s or so, and now when I see a road runner I feel like I need to call someone and tell them!
And now living in Broken Arrow.....I just miss red dirt.....
