Sometimes, being a good human just isn’t enough.
Footage has been captured of the moment a man rescues a lizard from an Australian swimming pool and releases it – only for it to be snatched by a bird seconds later.
In the clip a tattooed man fresh from his dip in a community swimming pool, clutches the reptile after saving it from the water.
‘Got a little mate called Bruce. Quite sharp claws though. Should I put him down?’ he says as the animal tries to escape from his hand. ‘It’s going to bite me,’ the man’s female companion screams from behind the camera as he jokingly moves the lizard towards her.
The animal scurries off as he sets it down on the lawn – but seconds later as it runs between two beach towels the pair were using to sunbake, a bird swoops onto the helpless lizard and flies away.
