This Lizard Runs Away From the Desert Heat and Into Our Hearts

It’s hot in Saudi Arabia. How hot? Well how about hot enough that even our little lizard friend here has to run like his life depends on it just to find some shade, even though it’s his natural habitat! The cute little dude, of the Uromastyx lizard family if you were wondering, seems to have been caught in an all too real version of the floor is lava game. Thankfully though, the frantic run reached a very satisfying end.

We like to think that in the days before meteorology, humans measured the weather by the fleeing speed of lizards.
