This is about as close as you’re going to come to getting a lizard to play, and I consider it cheating to put a nice, fat, tasty caterpillar inside the ball for the lizard to eat. These, by the way, are Australian bearded lizards, which have become popular pets in recent years. I don’t doubt the lizard enjoys the challenge of extracting din-din from the rolling ball, but it’s not really play as cats or dogs or birds or bunnies know it.

That’s play/hunting/eating, but it’s still fun to watch.
Hilarious! He sure had his technique down 🙂
Fun video. We have a couple of small lizards that live in our backyard. It’s always neat to get a glimpse of them.
