20 pictures show the various relationships between cats and lizards
Do cats and lizards get along?
What seems like an easy question does not have a simple and straight-forward answer. Being tiny and moving quickly, lizards are the perfect prey for cats. Certified cat behavior specialist Rachel Geller spoke to Bored Panda and explained that “cats have a prey drive that can be triggered by something that moves fast, and lizards move fast […] a cat may see the lizard as prey or something to play with.” What is more, the relationship between cats and lizards can be quite dangerous. Obviously, it can be lethal for the lizard; however, it can also cause several different types of infections for the cat.
Despite this, the following 20 pictures show that there are various and numerous kinds of relationships between the two creatures:
