A frilled-neck lizard have got to be one of the quirkiest animals that nature offers. And usually, it reserves its retreat posture for moments when it feels threatened. The retreat posture of this unique creature is actually quite comical. It rises up on its back legs, opens its big yellow-colored mouth, unfurls that colorful, pleated skin flap that surrounds its head, and hisses.
This usually intimidates an attacker long enough for the lizard to simply turn around and hightail it outta there. Its mouth and frill are open and it bolts, legs splayed left and right. This hilarious retreat continues without stopping until the lizard reaches the safety of a tree.
However, in this instance the angry frilled-neck lizard concluded that retreat was NOT an option and it decided instead to chase this Australian man down! It runs after him at full speed in just the posture described above, only this time coming at its antagonist full steam ahead!
And when it finally catches up...well, let's just say I'm really glad that this didn't happen to me!
Take a look at the video below to see what transpired when the lizard finally caught up to the man:
Now, I've never been a big fan of lizards, however this video might just be reason enough for me to think long and hard before ever going to the Land Down Under! LOL!
What do you think about this spunky little lizard? I'd say he made his point quite clear! If you enjoyed seeing him make his stand, please 'SHARE' this brave little guy's video with family and friends!
