    look at the deformity in the limbs. its a possibility it could be a racoon with severe genetic issues. but then again, it looks fully grown. Unless thats just the angle of the photo. It could be malformed or have some sort of bone distortion... similar to CP?

    If we gather, it is probably a mutated raccoon.

    The end of discussion.

    right?

    2nd pic shows the other side of the body.
    on 2nd pic the "beak" is shown from different angle, revealing what it really is.

    Are you sure they are the same thing, Temur? Now that I think of it, the first
    one is photoshoped, the 2nd one is (probably) not.

    Ok fine, it is an escaped gargoyle that was genetically engineered for the purpose of interbreeding with humans.

    That would be an accurate description for any decomposing animal..

    I think Varda will disagree with you. If not for the smell, I would disagree. I love watching time lapse photography of an animal disappearing.

    depends on how decomposed it was, either just bones or dried out. In our house we have a dried puffer fish, a sand crab, a horseshoe crab, a shark, cicadas, and a june bug

    If its dried out enough, its no problem.

    i was delighted with the june bugs here in the summer, there were many
    and i found a very weird tiny spider that we nicknamed poopoo spider, because she disguised herself as some of the crap that was hanging from the web
    there were also many many fireflies and it made me want to be a child again and chase them and put them in a jar
