I do not advise or recommend you pick up lizards or snakes and over the years I have shied away from doing so in photos. When I was in high school I had formal training by a herpetologist on how to handle wild reptiles. I wanted to be a herpetologist but the field was too competitive.Anyway, yesterday while riding Thunder Mountain I saw this little short horned lizard with two fire ants biting its leg. These lizards eat black ants but not fire ants, which will and can and do kill them. Being a sympathetic dumb human, I helped the lil guy out and pulled the ants off itís leg and then set it free. Thanks for the photo @sklarbaby
