The Short-horned lizard- What’s so special about it?

What animal do you think of when someone mentions ‘desert’?

Normally, you would answer Coyote, Bald agle, the desert fox, and lizards.

The Short-horned lizard isn’t really very well known, but once you get to know about it, it’s hard to forget. But, before we get to the interesting part, let’s get down with the basics.

The Short-horned lizard lives in the desert. No big deal. In the morning and evening, when it’s less hot, it usually hunts for ants, which is it’s diet. In the hot day, they hide under cactuses to avoid the blazing sun. Sadly, they’re the new trend for pets, they say, so many are being captured illegally and smuggled to different countries.

So far, this lizard doesn’t seem very interesting. It’s just seems like the normal lizard, doesn’t it? Eats ants. So? Captured a lot. Aw, sad, but lots of animals are captures these days. You’ll probably getting a little annoyed with me and is screaming, SO WHAT IS INTERESTING?!

Whoa whoa whoa, wait for the dramatic part!

Well, here goes: drumroll please :

The short-horned lizard can shoot blood from it’s eyes.


It seems like a gross prank, but it’s the fatal weapon for the lizard. This blood-shooting is only available once in a lifetime, because it uses up one third of all the lizard’s blood. They only use it when they are in mortal danger.

Here’s some videos that might help you understand :

It’s a bit creepy to see, isn’t it? Like those horror movies sort of thing?


Well, these lizards does it to live, so……. I hope you can understand the grossness of this.

Animals of all kind do all kinds of things to protect themselves. Change colors. Bury itself. Fart.

The short-horned lizard is just one of them, trying to live.

I respect these animals. They are so much tougher then any human I know.

What if Japan had won the second world war?

We all know that Korea was freed because Japan lost in the second world war due to the use of weapons we have never dreamed of(cough, cough, nuclear bomb,).

But say, what’ll happen if Japan had won the war, though?

Today I’m going to talk about what would have happened if Japan had won the war. It’s horrifying just by the thought of it, but it’s more terrifying if the events that could have happened are summarized.

So, before we start, let’s make a short story in our heads of the second world war. If it’s going by the correct history , then USA would have dropped two nuclear bombs on Japan and Japan would have surrendered. But let’s say that Japan didn’t surrender. Instead, they made nuclear weapons too. They dropped three nuclear bombs on USA, on the cities New York, Washington DC, and California. USA’s reputation and pride got deeply scarred and USA immediately surrendered. USA gave a large plot of land to Japan and Japanize was forced into the school subjects, although the language wasn’t forced on the people. Japan became one of the most powerful countries in the world, and it’s population became larger then China’s.

Oh, and people didn’t even care about the wee little country that Japan had in complete control, since they were too busy worrying about themselves.

What was this wee little teeny country called, anyway?

It was called Korea, ladies and gentlemen. Korea.

Oh, and that just happens to be the name of our country.

Korea’s residents are suffering more then ever. They are being forced to build large factories on the land USA gave to Japan and work in them, and they have to serve the rich people that lives in Japan. They are whipped and treated like objects. Meals are rock-hard balls of rice, and it’s only served two times a day. When these poor people move through the streets, their clothes stained with filth and durt, the japanese look at them with disgust, call them ‘Untouchables’, ‘Animals’, ‘Slaves’, and kick them, laugh at them, and spit at them. Every step the Koreans take, they grow weaker, because they’re carrying mountains of coal and bricks on their backs.

One by one, people start to collapse.

Here’s a conversation of the ladies who washed the clothes of the Koreans :

“Oi, Sora.”

“What, Hana?”

“Did you hear that the man who worked on the train rail, Jiho, died?”

“No! Why?”

“Isn’t it obvious? He died out of exhaustion! And hunger! And sadness!”

“I wish one day we’ll get out of this treatment and get back our country.”

“Dream on. The only thing we can even hope for is a tiny raise in the payment…..”

“Which is actually getting paid.”

“We’ll never get our country back.”

Have you ever seen so much hopeless souls?

The treatment doesn’t get better, actually.

Japan, hungry for more land, sends an army to Russia to conquer their land, and many Korean souls, one 10, one 87, gets sent to the army. They die fighting. They die of illness. They die of depression.

Some even commit the worst thing one can ever commit to oneself.

Chaos. Disruption. Evil dwelling one every corner.

Not an ounce of hope.

Hope? What’s that? The Koreans say in their sleep.

Happiness? Never heard of it.

Joy? Doesn’t ring a bell.

It all sounds nice, though.

They say.

The wars rage on. People are injured but still fight. Many are killed.

Until no Korean blood is left.

All of them are dead.

Now you see what can happen if Japan won the second world war.

War. Chaos. Plague.

More grateful about the outcome of the war now?

You should be.

The outcome is what’s keeping us alive.

The story of John Dolittle

John Dolittle is a character in a book series of twelve. He’s a short, fat man with a kind face and a generous and jolly personality. He is somehow specially attached to his hat and he even shows that he is depressed without it, in book 2, the voyages of Doctor Dolittle. But the most special fact about this likable
man is that he can communicate with animals.
So how is this possible?
The Doctor owes this special gift to his parrot, Polynesia. She’s a talking parrot, of course, and a very smart one, too, and one day, she talks about animal
language, and the Doctor shows intrest.
After some lessons, the doctor learns the language of animals completely, and since his job is a vet, he masters his job, too. I mean, vets are supposed to
treat animals. But they never know exactly how the animal is sick.
But now, the Doctor could ask the animal how he or she was sick. Like treating a person.
Doctor Dolittle became a well-known vet, but that’s not all. He joined a circus and made a successful show. He went to africa and saved the monkey species.
Doctor Dolittle even went to the moon.
And every animal loved him.
Do you want to meet this likable man who could talk to animals?
I do.
