Well this was a first for me. I'd recorded some feeding videos of my 3 sand spiders and got some pics of one. Camera off, lens cap on and that was me. Then I noticed the other youngster was in the middle of burrowing. It's just the way the cricket's head was still visible. I was even lucky enough to catch the motion of a leg moving sand over the spiders body.

Not often I ever "big up" one of my vids but even if you just watch the first 30 seconds I'll guarantee you've never seen anything like that before. (Unless you've already seen the vid).

At 3:19 looks like the cricket is getting a nice smooch.
