Common Five-lined Skink (eating a spider)

I spotted a Common Five-lined Skink (Plestiodon fasciatus) eating a spider during a photowalk along the boardwalk at Huntley Meadows Park on 18 May 2014. The spider appears to be a Wolf spider (Family Lycosidae).

    Great capture. I wondered what skinks ate and now I have at least some idea of their diet.
