I feel very conflicted about playing with a laser pointer with my cats. They get extremely excited about it, but also appear very frustrated because they never catch anything. Ollie in particular gets very weirded out after a while. So I don’t do it, even if it’s a lot of fun for me. Anyway, as this gif (pronounced ‘jif’) shows, bearded dragons can also join in the fun. Do they show signs of what we would interpret as frustration? How could we know – are they the same signs as in a mammal? Herp fanciers please chip in.
EDIT – as danlwarren points out below the fold, it’s not only cats and lizards:
