Did you know that roadrunner crocodiles have poison?
Son: Mom, right now I am a roadrunner crocodile.
Mom: Oh, a bottlenose roadrunner crocodile?
Son: Yes. (Opens mouth, makes strange huffing noise while scrunching nose.) Let me tell you something.
Son: Did you know that roadrunner crocodiles have poison?
Mom: No, I did not.
Son: Yes, they are venomous.
Mom: Oh. Is that why you did that with your nose?
Son: Yes, watch out, that was me shooting out my venom.
Son: Let me tell you something. Do you know how roadrunner crocodiles produce their venom?
Mom: No, I don’t.
Son: In the nose! Actually in a special part of their nose. It is called a…cubis.
Mom: A cubis?
