In the 14-second video that was shared by the IFS officer on the micro-blogging site starts with the lizard jumping off from the end of a wooden stick and into the water body.

While defining the unusual sight, the IFS officer scientifically explained how the creature completed the rare stunt in the video's caption. According to Nanda, the surface tension and the force when the water molecules cling together allow the little animal to walk over the water effortlessly. 

With this, the video has gathered over 32K views and 981 likes on social media. What surprised netizens was the reptile's walk over the water body.

While some netizens praised mother nature's incredible creations, others wrote that they could not believe the creature which was walking so effortlessly. 

A user wrote, "You might have seen village boys throwing stones in the ponds or canals and stones crossing by the same jumps." Another person commented, "Effortlessly?" Watch the video.
