I wondr about the meaning of this expression, which I found in the following excerpt from a National Geographic article:
"Undoubtedly, one of the quirkiest sights in nature is the gangly retreat of an Australian frilled lizard".
What does "gangly retreat" exactly refer to?
Thank you in advance,
The awkward (gangly) movements of this lizard as it runs away (as it retreats).
