Where did all the horny toads of Texas go?

Horny toads, also known as horned lizards, are now very rare in the state of Texas. As most horned lizards eat only harvester ants, and can eat up to 200 a day, there needs to be an adequate supply of the ants near them. However, due to the resent increase of fire ants, there have not been many harvester ants for them to eat, so the horned lzards have died out. Now, though, the lizards are flourishing in other states, such as New Mexico, Arizona, and other Southwestern states.
