We are very lucky at National Parks to view nature as it happens, even when it's right outside the parking lot! In this video a whiptail lizard tries to eat a sunspider, or windscorpion. This is a video in which one animal effectively kills another, so please don't watch if you are sensitive. The sound at the end is a tour bus arriving. For more information on sunspiders please see http://www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/insect/05589.html
