Frilled Lizard

I kind of feel strange posting animals showing their defense mechanisms, because I’m worried about what the animal is feeling when it’s performing them. Still, some are so distinctive and interesting! In this case the animal doesn’t look as intimidating as it does look cute though.

I always thought the Australians were great for getting rid of their one and two cent coins, but I didn’t realize these guys were on the reverse-side of the two cent coin. That must have been the coolest coin ever. Front side: THE QUEEN, back side: SOME FREAKY-COOL LIZARD.
