Interesting fact ...

Horned lizards are unique in many ways,
including their appetite for ants.
Many of them choose to eat the large
stinging variety of harvester ants.
When it comes to defense against predators,
it's hard to beat a horned lizards
arsenal of extreme camouflage, dagger-like
horns (hard to swallow) and the ability some
have to squirt foul-tasting blood from its
eyes.

I read about that blood squirting too, but I have yet to ever seen it! It would be sort of scary if you did not know though!

Re: Interesting fact ...

You're right, Tanya! I just grabbed your awesome "horny toad," and put it in my album.
Hope you don't mind! I promise to feed it lots of ants, and it will be warm here in Arizona.

I'm "grabbing" it also for the "Baby Animals" album. I promise to be a good Mom ;)

Re: Interesting fact ...

The little guy can use a parent or two, but that makes 11 of my shots in your album and the limit is 10.... but then I never like to follow rules much. ;)

Re: Interesting fact ...

He will be right at home there. I too LOVE your baby animal album. How do you do it? I just never run into that many animals to shoot and I am a hiking junkie!

Re: Interesting fact ...

Gee ... I didn't know the horny toad was
going to be stuck in the middle of a custody
battle! Maybe the little guy needs an agent!
Give me - give me! : - )

Imagine how far he could go if he just squirted a bit of that blood from his eyes for the photo. ;p
