Shongololo, stil alive but seems a lot of little spider-like insects are eating from it?

What makes you think that the bug (it is not a spider!) is feeding on the Shongololo?

The bug could simply be there co-incidentally?

Evidence please? Laughing out loud
LMBO Tabs, I said spider-like Eye-wink Eye-wink, and you want some evidence? Cool I took some pics of those dark-coloured bugs (and others) crawling over and in the dark-coloured Shongololo...LOL, you can imagine how clear those pics were Laughing out loud Laughing out loud Laughing out loud
But we posted pics in the days after the 17th, of the decay of this Shongololo. You know where to find them! Eye-wink Laughing out loud

Moved very fast (reminded me of "zilvervisje" - silverfish), looked like it could jump; I thought I saw small front legs; I estimate total length about 5-6 cm

Smiling Sorry Gerda I'm not convinced, our lizard has a more triangular head and the body looks more slender....besides the markings that are very different from ours.
I didn't only looked at the pics of several species, but also read their description, except for the Pedioplanes burchellii ( Sad couldn't find any on the www....untill you posted the link )

Puzzled Amai, how difficult this is!!!

Laughing out loud Hi Katja, I searched for Mabuya Varia & Mabuya Striata (both inhabit Kruger!). But I don't think it's our lizard. Our's has a pointed head and the Mabuya's have more rounded heads. And there were more things in the description that was not according to the one I saw on cam. :shock: But you know, mostly I'm totally wrong with my guesses.... Eye-wink
