Saturday morning Sheba and/or Nina picture

Something new in Nina's terrarium last week: she's now keeping trophies from her cricket kills.


See it? Hanging on the back wall? How about a close-up?


I don't know what to think about this. Maybe she's having a goth phase of some kind, and this is the lizard equivalent of white pancake makeup and black candles? I guess it's her room, and she can do what she wants with it, but it's a little unsettling, is all I'm saying.

Yeah, a little creepy. Could it be that she's saving it for a late night snack?

At any rate, her pose is beautiful. She's such an elegant anole.

It's the anole equivalent of having a beard - snacks for later.

Aw! The way you wrote your post is so funny!
You made my day.
Yes, things like that happen sometimes with my Anoles too. But the goth inspired theory, that's just way more creative than any of my theories.

Haha, warning future crickets. That's a powerful message for such a little creature! She is queen of her domain!

Heh...pretty soon it'll be multiple piercings and a choker made of tiny cricket teeth!

Ha ha...love this post! Nina is so cute; probably just going through a phase.

I'll really worry when she starts spelling out words with the cricket trophies.

Until now my impression of Nina has been one of poise, elegance, with a certain aloof reserve... talk about shades of Karen Black. Now I've got a question and I'm not sure I want the answer: How'd she get that to stick to the glass?

"Hell, let's see... maybe... right HERE!" Thwack!

What's next? Cricket heads mounted on the walls?
