|Jack and grasshopper|
Now the outside 'youngsters' (4 solid black DSH's that are now about 6 months old) are more like little velociraptors (sp?). They appear out of nowhere and circle their prey (which is more often than not, a bug or lizard - rarely do they catch birds). I really wish I could catch them on video as I'm sure that it would win something on World's Funniest Videos. We once watched them circle an Anole (green lizard) and as the lizard turned in circles to fend off his attackers (who took turns striking him with their paws), at one point he jumped into the air and hooked himself onto one of the cat's noses. It was hysterical watching the cat panic and shake his head trying to get the little lizard off.
