I almost feel bad because she's so clearly like, "WHY DON'T THESE TASTE GOOD?" But I'm sure she gets treats afterward. So cute!

I love that she keeps looking like 'This is what you want, right? I'm doing okay, right? This is really weird.'

That's nothing, I made an angry bird play Angry Birds. OK it was just a pigeon that pecked at my screen until it shattered and then flew away, but whatever.

I tried to get my gardenia to play Plants vs. Zombies, but she's just terrible at it.

My beardie used to attack my character on World of Warcraft, or any actress with dark hair if I was watching a TV show.

There are games I play and things I do every day involving a touch screen and I had an existential moment watching this where I realized that this bearded dragon lizard could play those games and do those things just as well - nay, better - than I do.

this was my final lesson to never, ever crap "I just wanted to say that I can't bring myself to click on that" into a thread.

That was the best thing I've seen.. on this rectangle, anyway.. all month.

It's interesting how she keeps zapping away, no matter how often she doesn't actually get to eat an ant. It feels like I should say that this is epitomizes some human behavior, but I can't choose just one.

Who else was rooting for her to get that fat bug that was buzzing all over the place? She was clearly hella keen on it but it was too wily.

This was posted on my herp society's forums, but I did not watch it until now. And oh, I should have! That was adorable!

See, I can't get my snakes to do anything that cool at all.
