    In nature, lizards may jump to escape an enemy. For example, it is natural for a green iguana to just leap from a tree branch to escape an enemy. They often land in water so they do not get hurt. The forest floor is often lined with leaf litter, not concrete and so there is not much risk of injury. Lizards that climb trees are often small and light weight so they do not end up as a grease spot on the ground in most cases.
