Prickly Old New Lizard

The largest of the potential new species found in Ecuador is this spiky, frilled lizard, according to a June 16, 2009, Conservation International report.

Aside from looking "very cool," in amphibian expert Robin More's words, the "new" lizard is of the genus Enyaliodes, an especially ancient reptile group.
