my freind is ALWAYS telling me that there is a lizzard that as a last resort, puffs out its ribcage so much that the bones stick out to scare away preditors in a life/death situation..is this b*&&%$£s or is there some wierd exploding lizzard? sounds unlikely, but maybe im wrong??

I know that there is a lizard which, when threatened can/will squirt blood from it's eyes... for the sake of me, I can't remember which one it is but, I'm sure someone else will jump in and shout out!

I have heard somewhere of some animal that explodes to protect it's eggs/young. Can't remember if it's a Rep or an Amphib or what.

the conversation....

hey, i've just bought a lizard, when it gets angry it puffs it's beard out and there are like little spikes on it, it's dead cool.

oh wow.. you'll never guess... *dave* has just bought a lizard where spikes come out and it blows its neck out when it's angry.

just been talking to *mary*, she said *dave* has bought this lizard that blows itself up with spikes when its angry

you heard about *Daves* new lizard? it blows its body up and spikes come out of its body when it gets angry.. probably when other lizards attack it.

WOW... i'm going to *Daves* tonight to see his lizard, it blows up and fires its ribs out when angry..
