did you know?
Thorny Devils grow up to about 4-6" in length.
Their color changes depending on the outside temperature. They can also change their color to match their surroundings.
Thorny Devils have an unusual gait, involving "freezing" and rocking.
They almost exclusively eats ants.
If rain lands on the thorny devil's back, it runs down the creature finding its way to its mouth where it is consumed. Thorny Devils can gain as much as
a gram of water in a rainstorm.
They have the ability to puff themselves up like a ball, which makes them look bigger.
