8. Thorny Dragon
Also called thorny devil, mountain lizard, thorny lizard, or the moloch. This type of lizard is commonly found in the scrubland and desert areas that cover a big part of central Australia. These bad boys have hard and sharp spines that make it hard for predators to swallow them if they are eaten. It’s also got a false head on its back and when threatened by potential predators, it lowers its head between its front legs, thus exposing its fake head.
