I was riding around our deer lease on the ranger today looking for some real in our tanks when I came across some of these guys. I was really excited to find 3 in one day, u haven't seen one in over 5 years. Horny toads are not as common as they used to be.

Awesome critters. I see them more often south of I-10. What county is your deer lease?

Awesome, I haven't seen one in many years. Fireants did a number on them.

I saw one on a lease road last spring a few weeks after I moved down here. Didn't think much of it & then found out they're really rare now. Wish I woulda pulled over & took a picture! Neat little critters

Cool, and nice pictures.

I see them at our family lease in Breckenridge every once in a while.

Very nice!

I was just talking with an older fella about them the other day.

I bet I've seen less than 5 since I've been alive.

Dad said they used to be all over the place when he was a kid.

Pretty neat find. I haven't seen one around here in 15 yrs.

There are a lot of them at our ranch I figure it's because we have a bunch of big red ants.
