    Hi.
    We found this eggshell in our backyard and it is NOT one of ours! Can someone tell me what it is?

    OK I am on my 5th try to post the photo!
    I don't know why it won't use flikr. I may have to wait until Saturday night to do this as I am in a hurry to get ready for the Sabbath.

    Can't see the picture [​IMG] You have to download it for free at Photobucket and then click on the image link below the picture (which automatically copies it) and paste it in your post. Hope that helps. Can't wait to see the eggshell. Suz

    Hey, Angie, how did you do that? How did you find the address to do it?

    It didn't feel soft and leathery--I have never seen any snakes in my yard, either. My old house, we had tons of snakes outside and I used to see them. their shed skins, babies, etc., all the time. Is it too big for Goose?

    Actually it looks to small to be a goose egg.

    I sincerely do not mean to be argumentative, but I have never seen a turtle here either!! Could be the first time. So, are y'all telling me this is NOT a Goose or Crow or something like that? There are a lot of Canadian Geese about a quarter of a mile from here. What a mystery!

    OK, I think I was posting at the same time as the last 2 posts. Hmmmmmm. There is a "flat" spot on the ground where the eggshell was found by my husband. It looks like "someone" sat there and laid it.
