This video was shot by Ricky Mackenzie, an Australian wildlife photographer who spotted a distant relative of the dilophosaurus while exploring the country’s Kimberly region. This little bugger is known as a frilled lizard.
A budding wildlife photographer had a close call with a frilled-neck lizard on January 31. Ricky Mackenzie said he was exploring 100km northwest of Fitzroy Crossing in Western Australia?s Kimberley region, when he saw the lizard on a dirt road.
The 18-year-old said he tried to move the animal to safety, but it turned and chased him. Mackenzie said: ?I see a lot of frillies. I didn?t want this one to get run over. I tried to help but he didn?t want a bar of it.? The video shows the lizard chasing Mackenzie, before climbing up his leg and torso. ?It climbed right up my body. I had to pull it off and it then ran away.? Credit: Facebook/Ricky Mackenzie
