Trivia question for Jan-11-2011
Todays good-looking creature comes to you compliments of Carter. Can you tell us what this is and also what it’s strategy is when being attached? Lastly, let us know if they are endangered or if they are plentiful.
Congratulations again to Ty for getting the type of lizard correct. We were featuring the Thorny Devil and it’s main defense tactic is to display it’s false head. That’s right, it actually has a large lump on its neck area which looks similar to the size and shape of it’s head. When being attached, it lowers it’s head between it’s front legs and only the false head is visible. Pretty cool huh?

Thanks for playing along 😉
