This is an extremely close view of Red Harvester Ants entering and exiting their nest. These ants were extremely common in Texas many years ago. As Fire Ants have spread across Texas they have slowly wiped out a lot of the Red Harvester Ants. The reason Texas horned lizards are endangered is because the Red Harvester Ants are one of their main diets.
