Friday Fun: Gross Out!

A horned lizard might be small, but it sure knows how to survive. First, it tries to run and hide. If that doesn’t work, the lizard hisses fiercely and puffs up its body to look as big as possible. It may also try to stab an attacker with its horns and spines.

The resourceful reptile has one more trick. It can startle enemies by squirting blood out of the corners of its eyes. Yikes!
