In what's being treated by police here as a complete non-event, a gecko found on the floor of a house in southeast Asia, had been so thoroughly nibbled at by ants, that all that was left of it was its skeleton!
The gecko - or lizard, as the specie is commonly known - was found on the second floor of a property in the commune of Tapon in Battambang by English waster, Moys Kenwood, 55, as he swept up dust and muck on Sunday.
Several ants were still at the scene of the crime. None of them would respond to questioning.
It's not known if the gecko (lizard) was killed by the ants, then eaten, or whether it was merely eaten after dying of something else.
It's even been suggested that death occurred after a lengthy and ultimately fatal period of time spent contemplating whether it should be thinking of itself as a gecko or a lizard, but this, it seems, will now remain unknown for all of eternity.
