Anyone remember Mohadormon? Can’t believe it’s been already four years since I created him and his line.

Copy paste from the old Bio, since nothing changed besides some design updates.

Based on the same lizard as Nevadomon, the Texas horned lizard, who can squirt blood from their eyes in a defensive manner. He is actually frowing beneath that scarf.

Texas Horned Lizard

this lizard is one of about 14 North American species of spikey-bodied reptiles called horned lizards.

The horned lizard is popularly called a “horned toad”, “horny toad”, or “horned frog”, but it is neither a toad nor a frog. The popular names come from the lizard’s rounded body and blunt snout, which give it a decidedly toad- or frog-like appearance.
Although its coloration generally serves as camouflage against predation, when threatened by a predator, a horned lizard will puff up its body to cause its spiny scales to protrude, making it difficult to swallow it also has the ability to squirt an aimed stream of blood from the corners of the eyes and sometimes from its mouth for a distance of up to 5 ft (1.5 m). This not only confuses would-be predators, but also the blood is mixed with a chemical that is foul-tasting to canine predators such as wolves, coyotes, and domestic dogs.

Despite its fierce appearance, Texas horned lizards are extremely docile creatures. Since they have very few natural predators, they are not at all aggressive, and will never bite.Today, it is illegal to disturb or keep a horned lizard without a state permit.
