358 - What's Inside?

I saw this hole in a ditch when I was picking up some nylon mesh (the kind they use to lay grass seed on bare ground, embedded in fiber to keep it from washing away before it can sprout--the whole thing is woven through a fine nylon mesh, but the mesh is a hazard for birds and fish). I picked up eight large pieces of the stuff that the wind was about to blow into the water of a pond. Not exactly environmentally friendly stuff, and yet it helps prevent erosion (from construction, so it's a case of causing a problem while solving a problem: typical human conundrum!)
I wonder what lives in there? Crawdad? Frog? Snake? (Big snake!) It's about 2" in diameter, so whatever it is, it's sizey! (New word--I just made it up!)

  1. Good eye to see the shot here! You could reach braavely into the hole just to see if anything takes a nibble on your fingers....

  2. When you inspect the farm you don't do it by halves that is good spotting for a horse lady.
    In so far as St Pat's day just passed it could be a Leprechaun bolt hole, there could be GOLD in them there holse. - Happy Digging. LOL

  4. Some things are left better unknown... I'd guess some sort of rodent.

  5. You didn't poke around for an answer so we'd know? Good thinking! It could be that big snake! Good catch for the theme!
