Hear the Horny Toad

Horny Toad (Horned Toad)

The Horny Toad (grow up), is a horned lizard that inhabits the Sonoran Desert.  Their spines are meant as a means of protection from predators.  In addition they have the ability to shoot blood out of their eyes as a secondary defensive tactic, however the assailant, now blood-drunk, will certainly prevail.

Horny toads typically feed on ants and other insects, and can grow to be 6 inches long.
