Most times you see a lizard it runs off just as you get close enough, and the smaller they are, the faster they run.
Here are a few photos of the ones we saw on the Galapagos Islands where they just don't bother. I suppose they were surrounded by Iguanas, so they felt a bit more laid back. The down side was that they were so relaxed that the main danger was treading on them. However I can report that no such tragic events were recorded.
Only one was seen to move with any degree of urgency and that was crossing a bit of sun baked sand between relatively cool rock shadows.
We tended to the same behaviour when wandering shoeless, but less gracefully. Also the other lizards didn't laugh.
No jokes please
