This is one of the weirdest, yet coolest lizards in Africa. As you can see in the picture above, they are covered in spiky scales which help them blend into their environment; Shrubs and rocky areas. An interesting feature of the Armadillo Girdled Lizard is it is ability to form a circle, revealing it is sharp, spiky scales. They do this when they are frightened or threatened by a predator. By rolling into a ball they increase their chances of surviving an attack as they quickly become unappealing or hard-to-eat. This is a very weird behavior!
