Nifty footwork

Conspicuous against the red rock of Utah in North America, a collared lizard gets more attention than he wants and is spotted by a puma. Luckily, when danger threatens, he can simply leg it. By lifting his front legs clear off the ground, he gives himself a longer stride without the risk of tripping up. With a stride three times the length of his whole body, he runs on two legs and can do a nifty long jump too. And he doesn't get as hot under the collar as the fur-coated puma.
