Frilled lizard

These prehistoric looking creatures are found in woodland areas in Australia and New Guinea. They spend a lot of time clinging to trees. When startled their frill bellows out and they open their mouths and even stand on their hind legs to scare off threats.  When under pressure they will even run on their hind legs. These creatures eat anything small that moves birds, insects, rodents and even other lizards. They crush with their sharp teeth to kill and then swallow their food whole. These lizards are very easy going and grow to a length of about two feet, the male is usually larger than the female. They can spend days without even moving, and then for no apparent reason just run away.
