Thorny Devil

Channels between the Thorny Devil’s spikes use capillary action to draw collected dew into the mouth! When threatened, a Thorny Devil (also known as a Thorny Dragon) will lower its head between its legs and present its ‘false head’, a spiked ball that sits on top of its neck! (Moloch horridus) Kings Canyon, Australia.

these settings are in the widgets slide-in menu!
