Frilled Lizard
The frilled lizard, which is also my favorite type of lizard, can also be known as the frill lizard and the frill-necked lizard. As you can probably see in the video, it uses the strap of skin around its neck to intimedate predators. It gets up on its hind legs, opens its yellow colored mouth, and opens the strap of skin around its neck to make itself look bigger too. Under this information, you can find facts about the frilled lizard.
