Frill-Necked Fly Hound

June 5th, 2008

The common frill-necked Fly Hound, or chlamydosaurus lupus familiaris, can be found in warm, dry climates. It feeds mostly on flies, but will also eat grubs, beetles, grass, bottle caps, earthworms, keys, small change and anything else it can find left lying about.

The frill can be expanded to deter predators, as part of the mating ritual, or as a trick to get enthusiastic busloads of Fly Hound spotters to hand over small morsels of food. In the event of injury, the frill automatically expands to prevent the Fly Hound from worrying its wounds.
