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 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
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!:) Some species of horned lizards can shoot blood from their eyes when they burst tiny blood vessels within the eyes. This only happens when the lizard feels threatened.
Some species can. Others cannot.
No. Thorny devils do not shoot blood out of their eyes. The Texas Horned lizard, Coast horned lizard, and at least two other species, none of which are Thorny devils, will shoot blood from their eyes as a defence mechanism.
They don't. It is a misconception that thorny devils shoot blood out of their eyes. The Texas Horned lizard, Coast horned lizard, and at least two other species, none of which are Thorny devils, will shoot blood from their eyes as a defence mechanism.
No. Thorny devils do not shoot blood out of their eyes. The Texas Horned lizard, Coast horned lizard, and at least two other species, none of which are Thorny devils, will shoot blood from their eyes as a defence mechanism. See the related link below for information about the defences of the Texas Horned Lizard.
They can only shoot the blood from their eyes once every few hours, but this doesn't take any blood from their bodies. This blood actually comes from sacs located in their heads.
It's a defensive mechanism against predators. Not only is it "scary", but it also tastes bad, making them not want to eat the lizard.

There is no such creature as an "American Thorny Devil". Thorny devils are native to Australia. The only North American lizards even distantly related are the horned lizards belonging to the genus Phrynosoma. Thorny devils do not shoot blood out of their eyes. The Texas Horned lizard, Coast horned lizard, and at least two other species, none of which are Thorny devils, will shoot blood from their eyes as a defence mechanism.
The Texas horned lizard and Coast horned lizard spit blood out of their eyes.
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.
They do this by restricting the blood flow leaving the head, thereby increasing blood pressure and rupturing tiny vessels around the eyelids. This not only confuses predators, but also the blood tastes foul to canine and feline predators. It appears to have no effect against predatory birds.
The Short-horned Lizard, also known as "The Horned Toad" or "Horny Toad" is the reptile known for shooting blood from the corner of its eyes as a defence tacit. When scared it can also inflate so that it looks twice its size, and blood out of special ducts in their eyes. The blood also contains a chemical that is poisonous to most dog species and relatives of dogs, so as well as distracting the foe… Read More

There are no Iguanas that 'spit blood'. I think you're referring to the horned lizard - which, as a defence mechanism, has the ability to rupture the blood vessels at the corner of its eyes - shooting a stream of blood at an attacker.
There doesn't appear to be any, though there are plenty of parasitic relationships. Did you know that if a short horned lizard feels threatened it will shoot blood from it's eyes?
The thorny devil, but not the Australian one but the American one more often called Horned Lizard.

They puff themselves up to make themselves look bigger to predators. They are known to squirt blood from their eyes when they feel threatened. The horned lizard's body camouflages to protect itself from predators.
Yes. Frogs (and toads) have mucous glands all over their skin to help keep their skin lubricated. If frogs do not keep their skin moist they will dry out and die. In some species, such as the poison dart frogs, the secretions from these glands are highly toxic. All frogs and toads have a degree of these poisons, even if it is only in retrace amounts, but in some species the concentration of toxins is… Read More
Taxonomy of frogs and toads: Kingdom: Animalia Subkingdom: Metazoa Phylum: Chordata Subphylum: Vertebrata Class: Amphibia Order: Anura After this is family, and that is where frogs and toads split. True toads are all members of the family Bufonidae. True frogs are members of the family Ranidae. There are around 400 species of frogs, and 300 species of toads. There are also several frog species that are called toads in the common name, but if you… Read More
God made all toads with poison glands behind their eyes for defense.
no they don't frogs do.
only when their eyes are open
No. They do squirt blood out of their eyes as a defensive mechanism, but it isn't poisonous so don't worry if they come in with some blood, and their spikes may be harmful to their mouths if bitten, but it's doubtful. Coyotes eat them.
Yes, all true toads are poisonous. The poison will not harm you as long as you don't get it in your eyes or mouth.
