Caption

Frill-necked lizard (Chlamydosaurus kingii). This lizard is found in northern Australian and southern New Guinea. The frill around its neck is usually folded, but can be flared (as seen here) as a defensive mechanism. The frill and mouth also display bright orange, red and yellow colours not seen here. This lizard spends most of its time in trees in tropical forests, feeding on insects. It can reach lengths of nearly a metre. It was first identified by scientists and given its binomial name in 1827. Artwork from the third volume (first period of 1889) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
