"Chill Out!", the modern advice to relax and let it be may have been the death knell of the reptiles in the last great ice age. As temperatures slowly dropped lizards and their larger cousins hardly noticed that their blood flow began to slow to dangerous levels.
"It was the opposite of the slowly boiled crustacean. No one noticed till it was too late. The climate change caused a slow freeze in the already cold-blooded population and before they knew it, knewts were knewt-cicles", explained climatologist Itgot Gorey.
Climate Change experts believe that a significant number of creatures reacted quite dramatically to the temperature drop. They gathered together and cuddled up to resist the declining temperatures. Most species may have survived the crisis except for the example set by a certain species of bush lizard that acted as if nothing was wrong.
"We believe this rather slow-witted creature never really got it! Maybe its brain was not well-connected to its body but the thing managed to model a complete denial of any dangerous climate change. This Bush lizard manged to convince other species that every thing was fine until it was too late!"
