The thorny devil, also known as the mountain devil, thorny lizard, thorny dragon, and moloch, has a lifespan of 15 to 20 years and can grow up to 21 cm (8.3 in) in total length. This reptile has a unique defense mechanism where it features a spiny “false head” on the back of its neck. The lizard presents this to potential predators by dipping its real head, which is located elsewhere. The “false head” is made of soft tissue to deceive predators.

The thorny devil’s scales are ridged, which allows the animal to collect water by simply touching it with any part of the body, typically the limbs. Capillary action transports the water to the mouth through channels in its skin. So, technically, they don’t drink water directly.
