What is the best thing to feed to horned toads?

I have been given several horned toads and would like to know what is the best thing to feed to them.


Answer by  PetLover1416 (16)

LIVE harvester ants are the best for horned toads. These ants are staple food for horned toads in the wild. A horned toad may eat around 20 to 100 harvester ants in a day. You might have a problem looking for a pet store that has this though. Try googling suppliers to get hold of some harvester ants.

Short horned lizards, commonly called horned toads or horny toads, eat a staple of ants. The kind of ant generally fed to short horned lizards are harvester ants. You can purchase them at pet stores or over the internet. It's best to feed each lizard about five ants at a time until the lizard no longer seems hungry.

You should feed your Horned Toad, harvester ants or crickets. If your Horned Toad dose not eat the harvester ants trying a smaller species of ant.

Harvester ants are best to provide the necessary formic acid in the lizard's diet. You can supplement these ants with other live insects: crickets, grasshoppers, termites, and beetles.

Horned toads eat ants in the wild and would prefer to do so in captivity. They will also eat crickets.

Horned toads eat fire ants. Although there are many different kinds of ants, horned toads love to eat fire ants and should be feed fire ants. You can catch them buy looking by an ant hill, grab a small container with a bit of sugar inside and wear gloves.

Horned toads love mealworks/crickets. Go to a pet shop and get a couple dozen of them and keep them in the frigde so they stay fresh. Your toad will flourish off them.
