If you can get past the freak-out factor, it is actually quite interesting how these dragons can chomp down a big bug without the use of their legs to manipulate it. They have all kinds of structures in their mouths that grasp the bug while the chew it up.

Super close up shots of nature in the raw. Not an activity I have witnessed very often.
