HS:MS - Chew

To bite and grind with the teeth.

I knew straight away what I was going to attempt to get a shot of today. So armed with my camera I went and knocked on the loo door to ask Matt if it was feeding day today. When he said it was I didn't think for one minute I would actually manage to capture it as it's pretty quick and only does it every other day but Way Hay I got it. So I present you with Synner munching on a live cricket covered in calcium and vitamin powder.
.

For those people who may be concerned about me dragging my children off the toilet just so I can get a photograph for HS:MS don't worry he had been in there for about 30 minutes and was only reading his book.

The only other news I have is that our friend has now been discharged from hospital and is recovering well at home. We find out today what his results are and what further treatment he needs. Other than that not a lot is happening around here at the moment.
