    By August these "babies" overgrow their "parents", and demand LOTS of food...

    Wow, I've never seen anything like that before. Great timing. Reminds me of the lion tamer putting his head inside the lion’s mouth.

    Thanks Mike! With a bit of patience such shots are easy to catch, as the "kid" is fed very frequently.
