Devil by deanbradshaw Devil by deanbradshaw
The thorny devil is a remarkable lizard common throughout Australia's sandy arid zone. They have the peculiar ability to draw water towards their mouth through capillary action along their skin.

This means that just by standing in a puddle or damp sand, water is drawn to the mouth where it is eagerly lapped up. Rain is a scarce commodity in the desert!

Great picture and info! I am a herpetologist and this just so happens to be my favorite lizard! The shot is great, it makes that little guy look like a huge dinosaur!
