No. The thorny devil obtains water by either of two main methods. It has thorns/spikes on its back that 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 thorns, or spikes, serve several functions. The thorny devil has thorns/spikes on its back that help it to ward off predators in its environment. It has an extra protuberance on the back of its head which may appear to be like a second head to would-be predators.These spikes have another function, and that is to help channel water towards the thorny devil's mouth.

The thorny devil's sharp spines are advantageous as they help it to ward off predators in its environment. These spines are advantageous for another reason, and that is that they 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.

every body part grows but the eyes show the smallest amount of growth


The diet of a thorny lizard are antsThe diet that the thorny devil mainly subsists on consists of ants, often the Iridomyrmex or the Ochetellus. Some reports indicate that the Iridomyrmex flavipes is its the predominant prey, but this species was renamed Ochetellus flavipes in 1992.Thorny devils often eat thousands of ants in one day. They collect moisture in the dry desert via the condensation of dew on their bodies at night. This dew forms on its skin, and then it is channelled to its mouth in hygroscopic grooves between its spines.During rainfalls, capillary action allows the thorny devil to suck in water from all over its bodyand the food chain i dont know lol xD

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 most notable special features of the thorny devil are the thorns/spikes on its back that help it to ward off predators in its environment. Its small body is covered with these sharp spikes. Another usual feature is that it has an extra protuberance on the back of its head which may appear to be like a second head to would-be predators.


The Thorny Devil's body is covered in a system of tiny groove like channels that run between its scales. All the channels run to the corners of the lizards mouth. These channels are capable of absorbing water through a capillary action (similar to that of a straw in water - some of the water will rise up the straw above the water level and this is called capillary action). The Thorny devil can not only collect rain in this way, but also drops of dew from the vegetation it moves though. Once the water is in the capillary system, the lizard simply needs move the water to its mouth by gulping. Thorny Devil also do not need much water as their skin is totally impervious. This means that no water is lost though the skin though actions such as sweating.


The main narwhal body parts are a head and a streamlined body. The head includes a sharp, long, frontwards projecting, curved tusk that grows through the upper lip. It actually is a tooth that grows outward from the left incisor of the upper jaw. Narwhal bodies include short, broad pectoral fins and tails.


Well to be honest, I don't believe that the devil can be in your body. It is possible that the devil doesn't exist, but there is no way to be sure.
