Hi all,
I was just out and about yesterday and i stumbled across this................. i tried to work out what had happened but my mind just went blank! The reason why i called this photograph a mystery is because all i can see is a claw and and dead frog there was no pond around, the frog was skinny and there are no crabs or lobsters around locally in the area at least!! If anyone could have or bring up at least a half intellegent guess i would be more than welcome to hear it Tongue

Could a bird have dropped it?

A real mystery! Could the claw belong to a scorpion? Perhaps the frog was hungry, so it tried to eat the scorpion - but the scorpion managed to sting it before it died. Along came another creature and ate the scorpion, but didn't want the frog! We shall never know, but you've taken a good close up, some beautifully sharp (if gruesome) details! Smile

Frogs will always make their way from wherever they are to the nearest watering hole. They somehow know instinctively where to go, so the notion of the lack of a pond doesn't hold water (!).

As for the claw? I've no idea.

I thought along the same lines as Karen, could be a scorpion's claw. Carol
