What a cutey - the thorny devil lizard or Moloch - features a spiny "false head" on the back of its neck, and the lizard presents this to potential predators by dipping its real head. The thorny devil's body is ridged in structure, and this enables the animal to collect water from any part of its body. That water is then conveyed to its mouth. Sometimes seen standing in a puddle of water sucking it through it's feet and then licking it's lips.
