"Quick, take a photo before it sees us"

Spinolurus australis is known for it's very nucturnal livestyle but only a few had so far the luck to watch these wonderful creatures during ther prefered daytime. In the heat of the day the animals normally sleep in small caves or self-dug burrows. They are the biggest animals of the australian continent and a relict of the Diprodon megafauna. Spinolurus is a herbivore which obtain much of it's water over the plants and small animals it feet, a adaption which was maybe the reason for its survival after the climate change 45000 years ago.

I like how you made it so that it was blurry as if you were taking a quick pick of this thing. And if its a dragon shouldn't it have bigger wings? .           .

is this dragon was a cryptid? If so, how did it become recognized by science?
Hyrotrioskjan's avatar
I refuse to call them cryptids, these animals are hidden from the rest of the scientific world and are a pure myth on out level of understanding ;)
