It eats veggies too. We have one in the backyard that eats veggies out of the compost bin. It seems to have tiny little white parasites/ symbiotes running around on its body (which is pretty cool because unless they were introduced with it, they're local insects that have adapted to hanging out on it/ living off it). I have a picture of one grazing on a carrot but the file is too large to post here so you can have a look at it on my blog here http://wp.me/p1JWCw-cd.
