Could be... makes sense! Gotta exercise all day instead of having a fried belly.

Joke aside, they do that all the time, not only in summer.

One time when we went to church, inside were some lizards doing what you guys say are push ups, but this was a Catholic Church and we all thought they were practicing the Catholic Missionary position.

That's okay, AZ Bear - I've got a mixed breed "lizard" at home - 1/2 Hunky, 1/2 Chunky.

I love lizards, I have plenty here where I live in California. They are very beneficial, and are neat to look at in my opinion.

I see them doing these push up's to, I always thought maybe it was because they saw an insect they were about to go eat or something. Either way it's rather cute.
