Thorny Devil is an Australian lizard and can live up to 20 years. The thorny devil's body is ridged in structure, and this enables the animal to collect water from any part of its body. That water is then conveyed to its mouth. When it feels threatened by other animals or birds, it lowers its head between its front legs, and then presents its false head.

Chrysolopus spectabilis: Botany Bay Diamond Weevil. Their long snout allows them to chew holes in plants to make egg chambers, and assists with food gathering.

The slightly punctated bodies have a white to green line running vertically their entire length.
