It is so ubiquitous, so inescapable… when did this start? Does anyone know? Does it go back to the earliest days of film, was there a silent movie Lizard-On-A-Rock that started it all, or is it a more recent phenomenon?
And are there lizard wranglers who have trained rock-scrambling lizards ready to go any time there’s a dry and dusty scene to be shot?
And are there really THAT many lizards in the desert? I’ve never been a fan, but I have spent a little time in a desert or two, and I don’t’ recall seeing any lizards at all, much less lizards on every rock in sight.
At least Mad Max ATE the damn lizard…
