^Surely you've had biology classes and heard the term "reptile brain" to describe the very primitive basic responses and behaviors in humans? Well, we evolved much more than that to our brains, obviously, but reptiles never really did.
Of course some reptiles are a little better, turtles have really good memories for example, and larger lizards can learn and remember some things. But ultimately, reasoning just isn't there.

I always feel sorry for them when they do something like that... but I have to laugh, too.
