Thorny Devil Saved From Death
Thorny Devil Saved From Death

Nicknamed 'Woolla', this small Thorny Devil (Moloch horridus was saved from being run over on the road in Alice Springs. Rescued from certain death, the Thorny Devil was taken to our local Alice Springs Reptile Centre, who will try to restore the Thorny Devil to full health before releasing it back into the wild.

Not usually found in Alice Springs, the Thorny Devil prefers the arid red sandy region further out of town. They need certain types of ants to survive, consuming up to 1,000 ants in a single meal.

This Thorny Devil was most probably brought in from the bush. They are protected species, so please admire but leave them in their natural environment.

You can find out more about Thorny Devil from our Flora and Fauna section: Thorny Devil and Alice Springs Reptile Centre - Thorny Devil.
