Our latest pet. He´s one leg short of a full set, but why should that stop him modelling?
Taken with flash on remote cord at f32.
He´s feeding well, and has some cotton wool soaked in water if he wants a drink. We found him on our porch a couple of days ago, and yesterday we found a younger (brown) one in the kitchen - it must be grasshopper week round here. They´re both sharing the same box now, and haven´t eaten each other yet.
I did try to find out the scientific name yesterday, but didn´t get very far.
We live in Spain, where he would be a "saltamontes" (mountain-jumper). I think his mountain-jumping days are behind him, unless he can grow that missing leg back.
