Discovery (Post#1) : Ngiyari (Thorny Devil)
When I did Outback Adventure in Red Centre area of Australia, it is not only the experiences and places that I treasured. During that time, I was to lucky to saw one of the unique species in the desert which is called Ngiyari or Thorny Devil. When I saw this one, I was kind of scared because I don’t have any idea if its wild species that will bite me or it is not. I took the photos of it while we were at Mount Conner Lookout at Lasseter Highway which just beside the road and the other side has desert that we quickly visited to enjoy the sand dunes. I asked our guide when I showed the photo and told me its Thorny Devil or Ngiyari is a lizard and its harmless. Photo captured last March 2013.
