Cover October

Submitted by editor on 30 October 2018.Get the paper!

The cover of our October Issue is a photograph of an armadillo lizard (Ouroborus cataphractus) showing it's heavy armour and defensive tail-biting behaviour. Body armour not only evolved to thwart predators, but also appears to be driven by climate, more specifically aridity. The photo is taken by Chris Broeckhoven, one of the authors to the paper "Proximate causes of variation in dermal armour: insights from armadillo lizards"
