You've saw one? Two in the yard yesterday, I see them here and on the ranch fairly regularly. I saw more horn toads than rattlesnakes this year, which is odd.

That's a good size one. Been seeing them often in Baylor county, saw a full grown one and two babies the size of a quarter the other weekend. Also have seen two of the box turtles I remember seeing as a kid, those I don't see much anymore. Sure glad to see them around, used to play with them when we went camping as a kid in the Hill Country and around San Antonio.

I have yet to find one in the wild. Seems like they're starting to make a comeback.

Do you have those large spread out ant piles with the large red ants (cutter ants) on your place? Horned toads love to eat those!!

Yea, they're called harvester ants, lots of them on the ranch, and a couple of mounds in my yard. They are hard to get rid of.

I haven't seen one in close to 50 years. They're gone from SE Texas.


In the end, it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years.

I haven't seen a Horned Toad in many, MANY years. It's probably been 30+ years.
We used to have a ton of them on my grandmother's farm east of San Antonio just off of IH10. I think as soon as the fire ants moved in on us it did them in.

I've read that they love to eat red ants though and I cannot figure out why we don't have a few out at my place in St. Hedwig as I have bushels full of them and poison them frequently in my coastal fields just to try and keep them somewhat under control.

Sure wish we had some because they are really cool.


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Seen this little dude a couple weeks ago on our prairie dog shoot just north of Lubbock. Don't recall how long it's been since I've seen one prior.

Been quite a while since I have seen one.
