weird lizard blood

This lizard is one of Earth’s freakiest creatures – it has the ability to squirt blood out of its eyes.

Its not much fun being a horned lizard as everyone wants to eat you – from flesh eating mice to birds, snakes and coyotes. The desert dwelling animal has developed spiny spiky skin to ward of predators but if that doesn’t work it resorts to a truly strange Plan B – squirting blood at its attackers from special punch below its eyes. The stream of pressurised blog can travel up to 2 metres.
