Wow, great shot.
Yeah gee, you wouldn't want your little skink Butters to end up on some critter's lunch plate... so sweet looking, that one.There are some of my smaller animals I won't take outside to play because of birds of prey that are common in the area.
Unfortunately no pics or videos available, but a guy I know who breeds praying mantises told me he once took one of them outside and positioned it to attack a butterfly but when the mantis pounced the butterfly took off with the mantis in tow.
That would've freaked me the hell out to no end.I once took a girl on a hike for a date. She was apparently, not a hiker, but game anyway and after about 2 miles in, she was starting to tire. So, I found a shady-enough spot, and brought out some food—cheese, sausage, apples, etc.
As she was eating, an eagle decided to land on the highest branches and eat his lunch as well, which was a diamond back snake. And, well, hilarity ensued.
The bird ripped through the snake and fumbled the end, dropping the rattler's tail still quivering and bloody, and it landed on this poor girl's shoulder.
She screamed bloody murder. I laughed. We didn't go on another date.
Once had some discussions with a bro who left an area of exposed lath in the bathroom ceiling here for awhile. It was left like that after the place was rewired and while I was entertaining discussions of whether to gut the bathroom ceiling and walls or just patch the ceiling until after more pressing renovations had been completed.I can see where that could make or break a relationship.
