Description

I'm afraid I kept no samples and all the creatures depicted in this observation are now deceased. But their life has been immortalised in film ;-)

This species seems to have a strange affectation, like holding out one's pinky while drinking tea, of having one rear leg raised as it partakes of the sweet nectar known as human blood.
