Wordless Wednesday (January 19,2011)

I'm interested to see who can figure out what this is....... post guesses in the comments :)

(I'll reveal the answer on Sunday 1/23 - patience my friends)

Thanks for your patience! The correct answer for what you see here is an American Alligator tail!  The original uncropped version of the image is on my website HERE

Hard to say on this one, could it be a gator's back?

I agree with learncreatedo, a crocodiles's tail. Very cool patterns!

I was also thinking an alligator's back or tail. If not that, then some type of segmented animal's back or tail.

Some kind of reptile skin.
