Thorny Devil

Image Code: Thorny Devil MRW-003666

Moloch horridus  Also known as the Thorny Dragon, Mountain Devil,Thorny Lizard.   Found in the arid regions (particularly spinifex sandplain) of central Australia, it feeds almost exclusively of tiny black ants.  They collect moisture in the dry desert via night-time condensation which forms on the skin and is channelled to the mouth in hydroscopic grooves between its spines.  During rain events, capillary action allows the lizard to suck in water from all over its body.
