Re: Clegg

Thanks all
These are vicious and will happily take a bite out of you with the mouth parts that point downards and cut in scissor action and the bites often get infected.

Re: Clegg

A fantasic shot to say the least. Looking at it on the computer is as close to these as I like. Vicious little sods and no mistake.

Definitely got more bite than his human counterpart.

Terrific shot of a rather revolting creature. Hope it didn't bite you for your trouble, Alf!
