Thorny Devil

Thorny Devil is a species of Lizard that has very thick horns all over it. This is often seen as an evil type of Lizard in many cultures due to the physical appearance of it. In the past it has been killed due to it being seen as a terrible omen for one to scurry in front of you. In spite of such legends though they remain in the wild in high enough numbers that they aren’t at risk of extinction. The Thorny Devil is about 8 inches in length and very bulky. The body is a sand color with various shades of brown and tan. The coloring often depends on the habitat they are in so that they are easily able to blend into their surroundings. They are pale in color when they are warm enough and they get darker as they get cooler.

    I had 3 of these at one point 20 years ago. I called them “Pooties”. Too bad it was hard for me to keep them alive. I really dig them.

  2. Landyn Schneeman

    Would love to have one, the only problem is the ant diet that they eat, but I guess I could just buy some from you guys .

      One of the most unique Australian lizards is the thorny devil!! Thorny Devils live on a diet of nothing but small black ants and they predominantly feed in the cooler mornings and late afternoon. When they locate a trail of ants they stand still and lick them up all up as they walk past! Scientists calculate that Thorny Devils might eat a thousand or more ants in a single meal – that’s a lot of ants!

    I swear these guys can shoot hot blood from their eyes too!

    They are gorgeous creatures, easily run over though as they are rather small and tend to stop in the middle of the track!
