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…
Behold "Fighter," crafted by a team of ice-carving artists (Japan's Junichi Nakamura and Shinichi Sawamura, and the U.S.'s Chan Kitburi and Dean Murray). It took first prize in the multi-block division and a Governor's Award (voted on by event volunteers) at the 2015 World Ice Art Competition.
In the video below, Dr. Ed Stanley explains why using these technologies is so important for scientists studying these lizards. Also, he holds up a 3D printed skull of one named Smaug giganteus. Yes, it's named after exactly what you think it is.

It's a 1970s television staple: the scene at the end of an episode where somebody says something, and everybody laughs or deploys a cheesy grin. It just goes horribly wrong in this scene, where they're all chuckling about "pain wands."
This two-headed bobtail lizard from Perth, Australia has two brains, and it consequently has trouble moving its hindlegs. But that's not its biggest problem - no, the lizard's larger head wants to devour its smaller one. Talk about self-loathing.
Brace yourselves, Battlestar fans: in real life Starbuck would probably be ugly as sin. Think more like a Ferengi, less like a supermodel. So would anyone else from the 12 Colonies, most likely.
