Frilled Lizard Running

The Frilled Lizard, also known as the Frilled Dragon and Frilled-Neck Lizard, is called by these names because of a ruff of skin which it keeps folded behind its head.

When frightened the frilled lizard stands on its hind legs and unruffles a colourful frill around its head to frighten its attacker.

If this doesn't work, it will usually turn around, and run away at great speed.
