This Frilled-Neck Lizard Chasing People Down Is My Jurassic Park Nightmare

Remember that annoying bastard of a dinosaur from Jurassic Park that sprayed his face open and spewed out poison at people? Yeah, that damn Dilophosaur terrified me as a kid. Actually, I’m still scared of it. So if I saw this frilled-neck lizard chasing me down like this, I’d totally lose it. This little lizard prick never gives up! It’s Jurassic Park in real life.


Apparently the man who shot the video, Ricky Mackenzie, said he was exploring the Kimberley region in Western Australia when he saw a lizard on a dirt road and tried to move him. The frilled-neck lizard wanted no part of that though and started chasing Mackenzie down and climbed up his body. I would cry. I’m actually already crying.

….He moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing his head. And you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity is based on movement like T-Rex - he’ll lose you if you don’t move. But no, not the frilled lizard. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that’s when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the SCARY NEST OF FREAKIN KILLER SPIDERS HE JUST CHASED YOU INTO!
