The images fea­tured in this pho­to selec­tion were tak­en at the Copen­hagen Zoo. Pho­tog­ra­ph­er Thomas says: “I’m more than sure that the com­rades in these pho­tos are a promis­ing din­ner, but they seem to be com­plete­ly unaware of this mat­ter.”

Amaz­ing pho­to of a chameleon with a cater­pil­lar on its head. If the cater­pil­lar con­tin­ues its walk through the chameleon, then, of course, it will end up in its mouth:

This fun­ny shot resem­bles a rid­er on horse­back. If the rid­er is not atten­tive, he will pay with his life.

A snake stick­ing its head out of the water became a rest­ing place for a fly­ing fly. One can only envy, and maybe even sym­pa­thize with the courage of the fly.

Look­ing at this pho­to, we mar­vel at the ant’s unusu­al for­ti­tude and sense of adven­ture:

An insect sits on the head of a beard­ed drag­on, and does not even sus­pect that it is the drag­on’s favorite food. Such a hol­i­day is unlike­ly to last long.

Adult alli­ga­tors do not like insects much. They pre­fer more meat-con­tain­ing prey. How­ev­er, it would be bet­ter if the drag­on­fly was not very sure of this.

Let’s hope that the lizard shown in this pho­to has recent­ly eat­en and now does not need food much.

Although snakes pre­fer to eat frogs, fish, worms and leech­es, the lady­bug is not safe. If the snake does not eat it, it can crush it.

The cute, young alli­ga­tor in this pho­to has not yet grown up, so he will hap­pi­ly dine on a fly. The speed of his reac­tion will allow him to catch a fly with­out any dif­fi­cul­ty:

The rib­bon water snake must have been a lit­tle sur­prised to see an ant walk­ing on it.

Judg­ing by the expres­sion of the lizard, she is com­plete­ly unper­turbed, because in a few sec­onds she will receive her favorite din­ner.
