I have done articles before about frogs being found embedded in stones but I am still going to post this one as I never tire of them.
Sometimes it seems fairly clear how the frog managed to get into the position it is found in like these posts I have done in the past, a protoplasmic sandstone frog, and this frog who was cruelly sealed up in the cornerstone of a West Texas court house and released, still alive 31 years later.
This frog found inside a block of bluestone is an interesting one and one of those that doesn’t have enough details for us to make up our own minds as to whether the frog actually spent any length of time in the stone or just found its way in there last night.
We don’t hear about these kinds of things in the news anymore do we? I wonder if it means that the well of Frog in a Rock has dried up recently or if people are a little more likely to notice things like convenient cracks in those frog bearing rocks.
Perhaps it is because much of our digging is done by heavy machinery these days. Quarries throughout the world contain poor frogs that have spent eons awaiting rescue. Only seconds after they emerge, blinking in the light, a large tyre squishes them… 😉
