Stunning, i really love these.
There is something that is much more scarce, something finer by far , something rarer than ability.
It is the Ability to recognise Ability

Thanks everyone!
The female was being uncooperative and dragged her rat behind a log but will try and get pics of her next time.
Her fangs are quite a bit bigger than his.

Isn't it beautiful! Nature's hypodermic needles. Thanks for sharing.
