Fact 1: There is a type of lizard that squirts blood from its eyes onto an attacker!

The regal horned lizard of North America has a funny way of defending itself. It will stop the blood from flowing out of its head.

This is a wonderful book for kids who like wonderful, "icky", creepy, crawly stuff found in nature. It is a very quick read and great for a beginning reader who is into science.
