"Cash Cab" Question

Post by BasiliskWrangler »

I was just watching Discovery Channel's "Cash Cab" and some women just lost their video bonus question. The question they couldn't answer was: "What South American lizard that can run atop water was named after a legendary creature whose gaze could kill?"

Anyone?

My favorite death-gaze creature was always the Catoblepas, but that wouldn't have made for a catchy company name.

There are worlds out there where the sky is burning. And the sea's asleep and the rivers dream … People made of smoke and cities made of song … Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice, somewhere else the tea's getting cold!
