So, after finding a nice and fat little caterpillar, I placed it gently into one of dudes many mouths. And, unsurprisingly if I’m completely honest, he chomped down hard on the squishy green bastard.

And now my many jawed dude has been fed for a few more weeks.

Yes, I know this post is quite silly. But I’ve had a few wines and wanted an excuse to spend my Partiko points.
