What does a thorny devil look like?

Thorny devils are small, slow-moving lizards. The upper part of their bodies are covered with sharp spikes which serve two functions: defence, and to channel all moisture towards their mouth. Their colouring fits in with their environment. Those in sandier desert areas will have the mottled colouring of the sand, while others in regions with different soil will have darker colouring to match their surroundings. The thorny devil's tail also has an extra protuberance to make it look like a second head. This is so that a would-be predator goes for the tail, rather than the lizard's real head. An image of the thorny devil can be seen at the related link below.

What is a behavioral adaptation for a thorny devil?

One behavioural adaptation for the Thorny devil is the way it can inflate itself to look bigger, thus deterring predators from coming near. Another adaptation is the way they will hide their head between their front legs and present their false 'head', which is a spiky protuberance on the back of their neck.

Is a thorny devil a top predator?

They are not very aggressive animals, even though they might look like it. They move quite slowly, even when searching for prey. The Thorny Devil is a top predator to black ants, and that is mostly it. They can consume up to 3,000 of them in one sitting. The main predators to this lizard are the Buzzard, the Goanna, the Bustard, and also man. We are the biggest threat to them. People want them for their skins.

How does a thorny devil protect itself and survive in its habitat?

The thorny devil's back is covered in sharp spikes, or thorns. It also has a decoy head equipped with more sharp thorns on the back of its neck which it will present to predators, protecting its real head by hiding it between its front legs. It may inflate itself to look bigger and more threatening to a predator. Its colouring is effective camouflage to hide it, while its slow, jerky movements are not seen by predators as easily as the quicker, darting movements of some other lizards. The spikes of the thorny devil have another function, and that is to help channel water towards the thorny devil's mouth. Water which lands on the Thorny Devil's back, whether it be overnight condensation or rain, runs along tiny grooves on the animal's body to the corner of its mouth. It moves along these grooves by a capillary action set in motion by gulping. The Thorny devil will also rub itself up against vegetation in the early morning to collect condensation on its thorns. The thorny devil's colouring is orange/yellow and black: perfect for blending into the desert environment in which it lives.
