Visit Australia, Get Chased by a Lizard

A frilled neck lizard attacks a man in Outback Australia. The frilled-neck lizard (Chlamydosaurus kingii), also known as the frilled lizard, frilled dragon or frilled agama, is a species of lizard, which is found mainly in northern Australia and southern New Guinea. The frilled-neck lizard is so called because of the large ruff of skin, which usually lies folded back against its head and neck. The neck frill is supported by long spines of cartilage, which are connected to the jaw bones. When the lizard is frightened, it produces a startling display: it gapes its mouth, exposing a bright pink or yellow lining; it spreads out its frill, displaying bright orange and red scales; raises its body; and sometimes holds its tail above its body. This reaction is used for territorial displays, to discourage predators, and during courtship.
