Horned Lizards eat red ants, exclusively. Their population numbers have been in decline recently. Studies conducted by the University of Texas were able to trace this decline, in part, to the eradication of red ants through the use of pesticides. In Zuni the Red Ant Clan holds a special place for Horned Lizard. Nelson Yatsattie, brother of carver Brian Yatsattie, created this reptile from show stopping palest green onyx. We love the well shaped head and smooth, highly polished body. Nelson inlaid turquoise eyes. About 4" long and 1 1/2" wide.
