Mommie and Daddy and the kid beans were all out at Grannie beans house last night and Daddy bean found this in the garden: This is not the actual toad that they found, Mommie didn't have her camera with her. The young beans got to pet it and it's tail didn't fall off. Mommie asked it what its name was she thought that it said, "George." When they got home Mommie looked for information about them on the internet. This is what she found.
1. It is not really a toad at all, or even related to the frogs.
2. Its face looks alot like a toad, and has a short wide body, much like a frog.
3. Horned toads protect themselves in a variety of ways. Their body is spikey and flat, so when startled they usually will flatten out and sit really still so as to hopefully not be seen.
4. They also have been known to inflate their body and hiss a lot, and in extreme cases, they can even squirt blood from their eyeballs to attack predators, a far as 5 feet away.
