Geckos do the darndest things

Today, I heard a rythmic tapping coming from up near the ceiling. It was a gecko who had caught a big beetle or roach or something about the size of its head. The little lizard had it in its jaws and was beating it against the wall to kill it. For about three minutes. Screw eating files – there’s real meat under that carapace!

Also, some old/new to you photos in flickr because I realized we have so much upload quota left for December. This one here is Mr. Crabula. Yes, I was making him talk at the time. It was that kind of day.
