Yet another memorable souvenir from Australia, a unique reptile I was looking for. This Thorny devil was the second I came across, we were both lucky that I noticed him, he was sunbathing on the middle of the road while I was driving, thanksfuly nobody was driving behind me, I had the time to relocated him a bit further in the bush. its colors were really different from the first specimen and perfectly similar to the environment where it evolved.
The thorny dragon or thorny devil is an Australian lizard, also known as the mountain devil, the thorny lizard, or the moloch. This is the sole species of genus "Moloch".
