Bit of an odd story, I found this little critter in my fridge whilst looking for something tasty to much on.
Can anybody please help identify it please and whtther theyre native to the UK (kinda guessing not though).
And sorry for the poor quality photos - they were taken on my phone.
I think it's an ichneumon. You could have a look on this site for one that looks similar -
- but identifying ichneumons is a very tricky area. There are lots of them and no field guides.
No reason to think it's an import.
I concur with jaguarondi.
To expand on jaguarondi's 'very tricky area', see my posts on this thead - http://www.nhm.ac.uk/natureplus/message/34839#34839
