ALL OF THESE ARE RELATED IN SOME WAY ----





What way is it?

Think Romeo and Juliet


Before I got to feeling so bad I stopped posting, I posterd the above question.

Below the picture identifying the plants (one is not too common)you will find the answer.




In Rome & Julie, Julie says

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other word would smell as sweet."

THE ANSWER

All of these plants are memebers of the family "Rosaceae," the rose family. Besides producing pretty floweres it is one of the most economically important family of plants in the world, outside of grains and beans.

Well, Im not sure about this one either, but i reckon i can see a thorn/spiky fang-thing on both sides of the 'inner' part of the image. So, maybe if it's not an electron microscopy of something quite small, then maybe a snakes' mouth?

I agree about the snakes mouth, the only thing that baffles me is the fuzzynes around the edges of the mouth,.. wouldn't a snakes be much smoother?? Not so much rope or fur like.. ?

Yeah, i had been thinkin that too, but there are definitely spiky/fang things in there. And maybe the rope-like fuzzyness is in fact the mesh of a net holding said creature?

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!

...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.
