The first part of the devil’s scientific name–Morloch–comes from a Canaanite god who demanded the sacrifice of children. The second part–horridus–means “horrible or causing horror.” Apparently John Gray, the zoologist who named the lizard, wasn’t a fan. The thorny devil lives in the arid inland deserts of…
