Tuesday's Puzzler Other Side
A Frog from Hell? Alien?
Make a guess if you dare,
Later today, you will be made aware...
8:30 EST UPDATE: THE PUZZLER ANSWER IS : The crushing plate of a black drum.
Black Drum are a common saltwater fish in the South. They are heavy eaters of clams, oysters, and other mollusks. The drum will cruise the bottom using it's sensitive chin barbels to locate a clam which is then taken in whole. In the back of the drum's throat, the clam shell is crushed by the pharyngael teeth. The clam body is swallowed while the shell fragments are expelled through the gill openings.
