What can some Horned Toads do when attacked or alarmed?
squirt blood out of there eye
Some species of short-horned lizards are capable of squirting blood from the corners of their eyes when attacked. The short-horned lizard is often referred to as a "horned toad" or "horny toad" because its squat, flattened shape and short, blunt snout give it a toad-ish look.

Yes horny toads have enemies some of them are fire ants and birds of prey.
Horned Toads are usually brown to gray in coloring. Some are more creamy or white in color, and others may have colorful markings.
No. They are not. The blood some species can squirt from their eyes is foul-tasting to predators, but they aren't venomous or poisonous.
Some have spines on their skin--such as horned toads. Others emit a slime when scared that will make the predator ill--toads. Finally, coloration allows them to "melt" into the background and not be seen.
If you have a horned toad as a pet, a couple of obvious names could be Spike, Barb, or Thorn.
Most Horn Toads, also known as Horned Lizards, eat harvester ants and crickets. Some species of Horn Toads do not eat harvester ants, however. Those types generally eat smaller species of ants. They also eat termites, grasshoppers, and beetles.
Horned Lizard hatchlings arrive in late-July to early-September, depending on the species. Some species require several weeks in the eggs to fully mature for hatching, while others are ready to hatch shortly after they are laid.
Though some species of horned toads, like the Texas Horned Lizard, are on the decline, there is no source determining how many there are left in the wild. Loss of habitat, the invasion of fire ants and the presence of cats and dogs have contributed to their decline. Certainly, it is anecdotal that people are seeing fewer of them as the years pass.
Cane toads secrete a toxin when grabbed, held or attacked in any way.This is chemical prey defence. Some plants release chemicals when attacked by animals.
Horny Toads also known as the Texas Horned Lizard are native to the mid western United States. They can be found in many states including Texas, Colorado, Louisiana and Arkansas, and may even be native to some of the northernmost parts of Mexico.
Some species of [Horned Lizards] are known to have the ability to rupture blood vessels around their eye lids in directed streams. It is not coming directly from their eyes. It is a protective reaction to perceived threat. It has been documented in at least 4 species, but it is argued there are between 14-17 distinct species of horned lizard, so not all of them have this ability or it has not been demonstrated in… Read More

It depends on which toads you are talking about. As a general species no they are not, but some of the species like the Kihansi spray toads are.
Most 'toads' lay their eggs in fresh water. But there are some toads that carry their eggs around on their back.
Some lizards are the Roundtail Horned Lizard , Flattail Horned Lizard, Regal, Texas Horned Lizard and Shorthorned Lizard.
First off, their coloring is a camouflage in and of itself. Some species can shoot a foul-tasting (though not poisonous) blood mixture from their eyes at their enemy. Most can also puff up and fall on their backs, digging the spines in their backs into the ground. This makes it hard for the enemy to get their mouth around and swallow.

Some toads are only there for environment, but some toads will give you items if you approach them. If you spot a toad while looking through binoculars and zoom in on him, he'll probably give you a gold coin or a 1-Up.
Snakes. Never buzzards. Some snakes, particularly eastern hognose snakes and garter snakes in North America, are able to eat toads because they are immune to the toxins toads secrete. Their poison glands make toads an unattractive prey to most other potential predators.
some do it depends
not all are but some are. :)
One of the reasons that the horned puffin is endangered, is due to the fact that rats have invested some of the islands formoly used for burrowing.
Toads get their energy from two places. They get some of their energy from the insects they eat, the same as all animals do. They also get energy from sunlight, which is why horny toads sunbathe so much. It warms their blood, giving them energy.
A Great Horned Owl is called such because of the 'horns' they have on top of their heads. They actually aren't horns, or ears, as some think, but simply tufts of feathers that appears to look like a pair of horns.

Toads are found on all continents except Antarctica and are also not present on isolated islands likeNew Zealand, New Guinea, and Madagascar. A group of toads is often called a knot. Like frogs, toads also start out life in water as fish-like tadpoles. While toads and frogs are biologically the same there are some key differences between them. Toads are associated with a drier, wart-covered, leathery skin, and shorter legs than frogs. They also can… Read More
Depending on the species of frog you plan to house with your toads, the answer could be yes or no. There are some species which can coexist with fire-bellied toads as they are immune to their toxins, but you should first take into account several key facts: -Sometimes frogs simply don't agree with others, a bit like humans and their personalities. Should this or worse disagreements occur, you must have spare equipment to house the… Read More
