"Looking for a lizard with unique characteristics, I came across the Friled Dragon. As I started to draw this creature, I decided to take certain liberties with it's "Frill" and point the bottom part to create a heart. A dragon is known to be evil and kill many. But I see love and sexuality. I'm not sure why. It's just something that was created spontaneously with this drawing." - Sean Martorana

The frill-necked lizard (Chlamydosaurus kingii), also known as the frilled lizard or frilled dragon, is found mainly in northern Australia and southern New Guinea. This species is the only member of thegenus Chlamydosaurus. Its name comes from the large frill around its neck, which usually stays folded against the lizard's body. It is largely arboreal, spending the majority of the time in the trees. The lizard's diet consists mainly of insects and small vertebrates. The frill-necked lizard is a relatively large lizard, averaging 85 cm in length.
