I put him in my tank and went out searching for some food for him and managed to find a few small grasshoppers.
Oh boy!! What a meal that was and I could see how much he enjoyed it. It is almost as if he was licking his lips at the delicious meal. :)
This is a VERY small Baobab Tree. They grow to over 3000 years old at a very slow rate of 1inch in diameter every 100 years one specimen being 8 metres/yards around!! They grow only in dry, hot areas of the northern part of SA. This is the tree which we get Crème of Tartar from and is derived from the seeds. There are many legends and superstitions surrounding these trees and authentic accounts of them bursting into flame by spontaneous combustion. They are protected here even though their seeds germinate fairy easily.
A Rock Monitor came past and gave me the beady eye so I grabbed my camera to see if I could get a few pictures of its tongue.
It disappeared fairly quickly into the bush….
