He raised up several times but I wasn’t able to get a clear picture of him standing on his hind legs. It was like he was sniffing the air to see where I was. Once he spotted me he headed for under the screen room. This next photo is blurry but you can see his big claws.
They eat mainly insects and I was surprised to read they also eat ants. I had suspected it, since most of the big holes in the yard are where there were fire ant mounds. My husband was all for encouraging him to move someplace else until I told him about the fire ants. Normally after a big rain there will be several big mounds. So far, nothing. I guess he’s been a busy little eater. The holes in the yard are pretty deep so he’s getting the whole mound.
