Icon81 To kill a lizard, turn it on its back

Comment: I have heard that turning a lizard over on its back will kill it
because it puts pressure on the diaphragm which stops it from breathing,
although it was my understanding that with rare exceptions lizards do not
have diaphragms. In searching for this topic I can only find forums
repeating the rumor (often passionately), with no mention of where they
got it from.
