Ok, I caught him, now how do I eat him?

I had the opportunity yesterday of going out with one of the researchers working at Rondeau Provincial Park. He is doing work on 5 lined skinks and salamanders.
He had just finished weighing and measuring this male skink when it bit him and wouldn't let go.
It looked like this small animal had attacked and bitten prey that was way to big.
Eventually it let go and went back underneath a log.

Plestiodon fasciatus
