|To be healthy in captivity, Horned Lizards need
space, a friendly environment, and the right kind of foods including
live Harvester Ants.
Harvester ants are the staple food source for most types of Horned
Lizards. They provide formic acid
- a necessary nutrient for horned lizards. A typical lizard may eat
from 20 - 100 harvester ants a day. However, most pet stores do not
supply ants as a food source for these animals.
|Life Studies has been supplying Horned Lizard owners
with harvester ants for several years now. Our prices and quality are
unmatched. We ship large quantities of ants and provide Care
and support on how to store and care for them. We can supply you with
the ants your pet needs. Order online or contact our office to set up a
system that works for you and your pet(s). Prices, Shipping, and
Ordering information below:
Note: Not all horned lizards eat
harvester ants. If your
lizard comes from a high elevation area like Colorado, Wyoming, Utah
mountains, or if it is young it may not eat harvester ants. Please read
our Care Instructions for more information.
|500 ants or more
|For example, an order of 500 ants
would be $10.00 + Shipping
| If you would like just a few ants
you can order them by the vial on our Live Ants
During extreme heat or cold
weather conditions, it is best to arrange for shipment to an address
where the ants will be delivered inside
or to a PO Box. If
possible please use an address of this type to help minimize loss of
ants in shipment. You may want to try Hibernating your lizard during the coldest part of winter.
During cold months or extreme weather, shipments may be delayed a few
days due to difficulty in collecting ants. Be sure to read our Care
Instructions before ordering.
Harvester Ants can sting. Adult Supervision Required.

Note: Harvester Ants cannot be shipped to Oregon or Hawaii. Please do not order if you live in one of those states.
Note: An unusually long cold spell has made it difficult to collect ants. Coupled with holiday orders this has caused a delay in shipping. Expect longer than normal delivery times. We recommend either hibernating your lizard(s) during winter, or supplementing with pinhead crickets or other small insects while the ants are difficult to collect.
Shipping is normally
