Aggressive?

So a little while ago I was feeling a void - I realized I hadn't bought anything on etsy for a while! And as I was browsing around I came to one of my favorite shops: Spidercamp. I've ordered a bunny from her before, and saw that she had some fabulous stickers in her shop.

How could I possibly pass this up?
The stickers, along with spidercamp's awesome business card, which long ago inspired me to handmake my own cards.

So of course I put a sticker on the salamanders' cage. So cute and harmless looking, right? WRONG. These things are vicious little eating machines. I tried holding them together in one hand and it turned into a big wriggling fight with the flailing of tails and gnashing of miniscule teeth (they get along fine in the cage, though). When devouring a mealworm they first have to beat it into submission by thrashing their head side to side and against the ground.

So yeah... maybe the sticker isn't so ironic after all - it's pretty accurate actually.
