Thorny Dragon

Thorny Dragon has an intimidating array of spikes cover the entire upper side of the body. These thorny scales also help to defend it from predators. Camouflage and deception may also be used to evade predation. The thorny dragon also features a spiny "false head" on the back of its neck, and the lizard presents this to potential predators by dipping its real head.
