The thorny lizard, native to Australia, is able to drink simply by touching water (i.e. dew forming on its skin); its scale structure allows it to collect and direct water towards its mouth via hygroscopic grooves between its spines. It can also suck in water from all parts of its body via capillary action during rainfall.
