The clip opens with a snake spotting and chasing the young lizard, which suddenly stops stock still in its tracks in an effort to hide from its pursuer.

Presenter David Attenborough sets up the tension that follows by explaining that although snakes can’t see very well, they can detect movement. If the iguana can manage to stay calm and very, very still, he may just about manage to escape what would surely be a brutal death.
