Unwrapping the Towel to reveal the Iguana
A few moments earlier that iguana was alive and kicking, and swimming, and now it appears mysteriously to be DEAD!? Well I don't believe it. A creature can not have drowned so quickly and be as lifeless as that when it was so lively so recently.
Besides, it's twitching...
After this brief piece of acting, the lizard suddenly came back to life and sped away in a trice! "Playing possum" is yet another trick which reptiles use to defend themselves against predators, who are put off or put off-guard by such antics.
