Hi guys,

I found this fella in our garden close to my father's finch cage this afternoon...
Any idea what it is? it looks similar to a spotted skaapsteker that I found in another post a while back, but it does still looks different...

Thanks

Yes that is a Rhombic skaapsteker.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

A very nice looking one at that!
You know, you can touch a stick of dynamite, but if you touch a venomous snake it’ll turn around and bite you and kill you so fast it’s not even funny.
