Zebra-Tailed Lizard (Callisaurus draconoides) — Image by kenne

Zebra-tailed lizards are the fastest lizards in the desert. They have an odd habit of curling their tail
over their back, thus revealing the striping, and then waving it slowly from side to side. The most widely
accepted theory is that this lulls their predators like a hypnotist’s watch, which prevents them from reacting
quickly when the zebra-tailed lizard suddently zips away.
