A cartoonish, brown lizard with a large head and spines along its back straddles a tree branch.
The Boyd’s forest dragon has sharp spines to deter against predators–but its main defense is camouflage. Find this tree-dwelling Australia native in the LAIR on your next visit to the Zoo. Photo by Jamie Pham.
