A sheeps mouth. With fangs? Thats some crazy ass genetic manipulation going on there :)

Hmmmm, maybe an electron micrograph of the foot pads of one of those 'walking up vertical glass' critters.

Having been out of action for a while, it is probably time for me to resume my crafty mental manipulations of all you easily deluded people by posting some thing only an alien census taker might recognize. (Or perhaps Neil and/or Doctor Beaver)

What is it? - Good Luck!




NOT!

Just bringing picture to this page!!! I see one tooth possibly 2 teeth kind of flat,or not a snake.. not fang like...Perhaps I am wrong...LOL I think it be a sheep. The tooth is located in upper right hand sidetowards the back of black throat hole.. the tooth is not pointed which tells me perhaps it is a vegetarian, that tooth is for grinding and chewing not ripping.. I think this be a sheep!! Alright Jim Bob what is it?? Roof of mouth, back grinding molar.. so to speak!

Nosferatu, nor his other toothily gifted friends has no part in this picture. As for baleen, this picture was taken in an area where people kill for water.

...people kill for water... Im guessing not the moon.... Prob some kind of desert, though that could be a hot, sandy-type desert or an icy-but-never-rains type desert.
Its a vertebrate. Not a snake or a whale.
I still dont know what those spiky-things are that I can see. Not fangs, however.

Hmmmm. Im stumped.

Hmmmm, very funny visual-"Junius, I'll give you 10 horny toads if you scout out that hill tomorrow morning and if you're back by six with a complete report I'll throw in a dung beetle."

I was thinking the inside of a horny toad's mouth- I've never seen what that looks like- but I guess the furry things on the side don't make sense, like for the snake. 
Salt caves was just another wild guess- but I just realized it doesn't fit in the three categories you narrowed it down to earlier. 

Salt or horny toads . . .  I guess the salt would be easier to carry.
Those Romans sure were smart!

Roman soldiers being paid in salt rations = origin of word 'salary'...... Useless bit of info number 576.....
Actually, thinking about it - people would kill for water on the ocean too. Cant really drink the sea, can you? "water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink..."

Rightyo then. Is it a picture of a sea-living creature?

Adam,

Enjoy your ski trip, and all the wet snow (or is it powder you want?) This will still be here when you get back if I am not backed into a corner.

Either way snow will be water again. And it will not have the salty blood a horny toad has. An addendum: a Roman paymaster may have had contact with one of these on occasion.

Karen mentioned sheep and, as water is important here, could it be a sheep's bladder?

OH, YOU CLEVER GIRL!
I almost gave it to you when you went through the analysis and figured out it was a herbivore tooth. Congratulations!
