SOUTHERN ANGLE-HEADED DRAGON Gonocephalus spinipes (Dumeril and Dumeril, 1851)
This 35 cm lizard is found in rainforests from the central coast of NSW to South East Queensland.
The prominent spikes are always erect. It is diurnal and mainly arboreal.
This species relies upon camouflage to avoid detection, and is usually only found when crossing roads and bush tracks. It is generally not a very fast moving species. Little is known of its' biology although it appears to be insectivorous.
The above was from the book Australian Reptiles and Frogs by Raymond Hoser and now available on a fantastic CD-Rom along with a vast amount of other information, papers and the like on reptiles, frogs and other wildlife.
