The Texas Horned Lizard
Okay, the Texas horned lizard isn’t the deadliest reptile out there by a long-shot, but his chief defense mechanism definitely qualifies as one of the most horrifying in all of nature. No, it has nothing to do with those thorn-like spikes that adorn its tiny body ... that would be too predictable. No, this little guy SHOOTS BLOOD OUT OF HIS EYES!!! Yes, when under threat of attack, the horned lizard activates glands within its sinus cavities and shoots out blood from its eyeballs onto whatever is unfortunate enough to cross its path. The blood isn’t boiling or poisonous, it doesn’t really have the potential to physically harm you at all, but that doesn’t make it any less terrifying!
