Very excited to find my first thorny devil (Moloch horridus)- these little dragons are incredible, they are they covered in spikes and exceptionally good at camouflaging into the bush, and also have a “false head” on their neck, which when they dip their head helps to hide their real head from predators! They also use capillary action to transport water to their mouths from their skin! How amazing are these guys! Found near Natures Window in Kalbarri, Mid West Western Australia.

What a fantastic creature! I bet you were really excited to find him/her. Are they only found in Australia?
Only in the arid areas of Australia! A very cool lizard, have wanted to find one for years
