The Skull Face Drake is the smallest of the Jack-O-Lantern genus.
While most of this genus display their jack-o-lantern pattern’s via their inflated throat pouches, aside from the Pumpkin King Drake, the Skull Face must inflate it’s entire body to reveal the trademark smile.
Despite the impressive defense of a Jack-O-Lantern smile, the first line of defense is to be as in inconspicuous as possible. The Skull Face will release a foul odor, should provoked, and remain still to give the impression that it is a decomposing corpse. Should this not deter a predator it will then inflate as a last ditch effort.
While quite buoyant when inflated, flight can become quite cumbersome do to the distended underbelly.
