urban grave

I love spotting animal traces like bird steps or kitten paws left on wet sidewalks. This deep frog corpse crater found in Brooklyn totally takes the cake though. I must go visit him.
"At some point when the sidewalk was being set on a corner in Greenpoint, a poor city amphibian flipped over and ended its life. [Note: it doesn't look like it has a head because the neck was arched back and created an over hang in between the arms.]"

This is really cool, but poor little frog! I found an amazing (and big) fossilized turtle on the Cumberland Plateau a few years ago while hiking. He was just in mid-swim, then whatever happened happened and he was encased in sandstone forever. I'll have to see if I can find that pic and post it.
