Caption: Frilled lizard (Chlamydosaurus kingii) during a threat or courtship display. The lizard has opened its mouth and raised its frill to increase its apparent size and fierceness. The frill, a scaly skin fold supported by cartilage rods, is normally held flat against the body. This large lizard measures around 85 centimetres in length. It lives in trees in New Guinea and northern Australia, where it mainly preys on insects.
