Mystery Picture: Mean little critter?

My kids and I were enjoying a summertime snack on the patio earlier today, and this little thing was found on the table-along with many others!  Nothing was added, doctored, or retouched.

    How about a frog?


    But frogs aren’t mean usually. Lazy and annoying, but not usually mean. Maybe it’s sarcasm…:)

    Hi Michaelc- good guess, cause that’s what the pic suggests- but not a frog (nor a to-ad :)

    a hummingbird?


  4. RK | Founder | Profile

    not a hummingbird…

    maybe a moth? But again, not a very scary critter


  6. aetrac | Profile

    its the mandible of a wasp/bee.

    a turtle, perhaps a box turtle…

    A worm in an apple.

    Maybe a mosquito or mosquito larva. They are mean!

    ok, before I post a little more of the picture, here’s a big hint:


    It’s not an animal


  12. suineg | PUZZLE MASTER | Profile

    maybe its a fungus in a cake or in a slice of bread


  13. Sue | Profile

    A dead mosquito in a spider web


  14. michaelc | Profile

    A mushroom perhaps…


  15. mfeex | Profile

    a venus fly trap?

    it could be a snake

    a Melon seed?


  18. MattHogan | Profile

    looks like a Watermelon seed to me.


  19. RK | Founder | Profile

    Some very good guesses, and detmom and MattHogan got it. The photo was a closeup of an OrangeGlo Watermelon seed, the fruit of which is one of the most delicious things you’ll ever come across. Very different from a regular watermelon…and the bright orange flesh really does glow orange.


    And the seeds look like little critters-

    This weekend I should be able to get another one, and will try to post a picture of the melon cut so you can see :)

    Hmmmm…..Just a thought….the “believe it or not” and the “mean little critter” were kind of misleading in my opinion.


  21. RK | Founder | Profile

    mfeex-thanks for the feedback. I agree, will remove ‘believe it or not’. ‘ Mean little critter’ initially didn’t have a question mark at the end of it, but shortly after posting went back and put that in….maybe it needs to be removed altogether…
