At first, he picks the lizard up and starts working on the can, and seemingly realizes that removing the can is a bit more involved, he squats down with the lizard just above the ground as he wrestles with the can in one hand and holding the body of the monitor lizard in the other.

After about a minute-and-a-half working the can, he is successful. He then placed the lizard on the ground. The lizard lay motionless, seemingly stunned with its encounter with the can, and then the officer. The officer then gave the lizard a nudge and it moved. Then the video ends.
