I know, I know...again with the Polydamas. I can't help it. They're just so darned interesting. My last couple posts talked about defense mechanisms...this little guy, aside from ingesting a poisonous plant and tasting just plain icky to birds, has a fleshy yellow horn that comes out of the top of his head when provoked. I taunted the poor thing so I could get a pic. When the horn is exposed, a foul odor is released. Lemmee tell you PEWWEE!
