THE horned toad is not a toad but rather a type of lizard that lives in the deserts of the western United States and Mexico.
Most horned toads are between 7,5cm and 15cm long and have sharp hornlike spikes on their head.
When one of these reptiles is frightened its eyes puff up until they bulge out of his head. Then a fine jet of blood squirts from blood vessels in the corners of the lizard's eyes. The squirt might travel up to 12,5cm. -
