Thorny devils are Australian reptiles. Specifically, they are lizards specially adapted to live in dry conditions. The upper part of their bodies are covered with sharp spikes… which serve two functions: defence, and to channel all moisture towards their mouth. The Thorny Devil lives in the desert and semi-arid outback regions of Australia. Also sometimes known as the Moloch, it is mostly found in the western two-thirds of the continent, through Western Australia, the Northern Territory and South Australia.

The Australian thorny devil is covered with soft spines. When water lands on the thorny devil's back, whether by rain or just overnight dew, it runs down the reptile's spines …and along thousands of tiny grooves, which carry the water to the corners of the thorny devil's mouth. Its colouring ranges from yellow to reddish-brown to black, depending upon which type of soil it is crossing. It is able to use camouflage as protection, because it can change colour to match the soil beneath it. This also helps its survival.
