A Lizoabat was last seen by a U.S drone flying across Panama. At first the creature was thought to be an Unidentified Flying Object because it was moving at 110mph. fortunately with the advancement of technology, image of the creature was magnified over 100x. The drone actually caught a very rare glimpse of this creature. Lizoabats are fairly large farquars with unknown origins. Some people believe that the Lizoabat is a relative of the dragon, but no researcher has made a successful attempt at capturing it to run test. This farquar has some special physiological traits, mating habits, and hunting techniques. Lizoabats are new to the animal kingdom. Little is known about such fascinating creatures, but this paper covers most of what has been …show more content…
The Lizoabat develops very rough skin in order to survive hot, humid environments. It is believed that Lizoabat skin adapts to the hot environment because as babies, Lizoabats have very smooth sleek skin because they live in the water for the first year of their lives. They do not have legs. They are blind but they have incredible senses by using a combination of echolocation and tongue flicks to smell its surroundings. Once again, the development of echolocation may be an adaptation obtained from their first year living in the water. They possess gills and have an increased lung capacity as babies. Female Lizoabats are born with two distinct stripes, while males are born with one. Alpha male Lizoabats have two horns. Betas have one. Lizoabats have huge wings that allow it to fly at excess speeds (150-180mph) and are used for protection during times of vulnerability. Lizoabats are able to increase their body mass by storing food in tow appendages located on their stomachs. Females have a pouch on their abdomens to carry eggs, but this doesn’t develop until they become pregnant. Lizoabats weigh around 205-250lbs. Lizoabats learn how to swim before they learn how to fly. Living in the water during the first years of life may explain why Lizoabats love consuming enormous amounts of fish. After the first year, Lizoabats emerge from the water and learn how to fly.

Originating in the city Supai, Arizona, the Lizoabat is rarely seen by the public eye. When the Lizoabat travels, they move fast and travel at night. Therefore, it is very hard to keep up with a Lizoabat. They can reach speeds up to 180mph. They are pretty hard to find because they migrate into unexplored caves during mating season. Lizoabats have four inch fangs which lock onto predators and they always die. Venom is pumped into their victims immediately after the fangs puncture the flesh. The venom is injected at a rate of one milligram per second. The Lizoabat usually injects about one pint per fang. Thus, making sure that their victims do not have a chance of survival. Because the Lizoabat injects such a large dose of venom, they must take time to recharge their venom reservoirs. Times of vulnerability arise when their venom reservoirs are depleted. The only defense they have during that time are their claws and wings. Lizoabats must wait for approximately three days to recharge their venom reservoirs. Some animals that the Lizoabat enjoys eating include bats, various birds, monkeys, numerous amounts of various fish. The Lizoabat also swims better than most fish. An adult Lizoabat can stay under water for about three hours. Lizoabats have special gills that help it breath under water. They also possess extra air sacs in their lungs developed when they are babies. The Lizoabats wings fold
