Well, not really only in Texas, but we do have a lot of ’em here!  When we went up to Sweetwater for my brother-in-law’s wedding, Gaylon caught a Horny Toad.  Yes, there really is such a thing, and yes, they really can and will shoot blood out of their eyes if you aggravate them enough.  My dad managed to get one to do it once.  Gaylon, however, is much nicer than my dad, and this one was not alarmed at all. 🙂 Anyway, I took some pictures.  They really are adorable!! (Sorry I didn’t post anything for the last two Only In Texas Fridays. . . it’s been wild around here!  I’ll try to be on time this next week.)
