Cricket Farewell

We will keep dealing with the food topic but from a different perspective: food that is alive!. What do you think happened next? Well this is no national geographic documentary and I was not on a trip in the wild commisioned with big money. This picture was taken in the quiet atmosphere of a reptile terrarium, the cricket was placed there on purpose for the shot and the salamander (as usual I am not sure if this is a salamander) did eat the poor animal. We paid a visit to a friend of us who's quite addicted to crawling creepy things and he gently showed me all of his "trophies". An offer I could not reject. I took some decent pictures and we sat at the table to eat paella trying to dismiss disgusting thoughts about slimy creatures in the next room.

Bon Apetit! Yeah, I think the salamander (or whatever it is) ate the poor little cricket.

-Thanks Big Scott for your words and visit.
-Thanks to my friend's correction today in the morning, I finally found out how terribly wrong I was when I mistook a Northern Velvet-tailed Gecko (Oedura castelnaui) for a salamander. See a good picture here http://www.kingsnake.com/oz/lizards/geckos/ocastel.html

well I'm certainly no salamander, but yesterday's dish looks just a bit more appetizing....
