Its a thought – but I’m really not sure – they do tend to lie flat on their tummies when warm – but they do have some very unusual behaviours and sounds – I think as a species there is still an awful lot we don’t understand about these little creatures. They have been around for a lot longer than we have, so probably good reasons for it that they know about. The spot he chose was very leafy and I have read they cover themselves to build immunity and defence to the area they are in as well.
He is still around – but not appearing for food as regularly as he was – I expect his attention is turning to looking for girls!
