Frilled Neck Lizard (Chlamydosaurus kingii)
Appearance: 'Camouflage' colouring with a bright neck frill, displayed when the lizard is alarmed.
Habitat: These lizards like hot tropical climates and are found throughout northern Australia.
Diet: Hunts in trees for insects, and on the ground for ants, termites, spiders and smaller lizards.

Interesting Frilled Neck Lizard Facts:
When this one metre long lizard is frightened, it runs on its hind legs and is sometimes called the 'bicycle lizard' because of this behaviour. When Australia adopted decimal currency, the Frilled Neck Lizard was pictured on the two cent coin.
