Default Almost threw up...

When I pulled these guys out of a tub of coolant. Luckily I had my camera next to me. Enjoy?

Yeah, I pulled the fat one out and a second came out with it. The fat one had a really good grip too. Couldn't shake them apart. Then I found half of a frog in there :P

People set up coolant traps to nab these little *******.

I wonder if the guy was trying to get his buddy out and failed.

I drained coolant out of my car a few weeks back and never disposed of it. The mice like taking dips in it so much I decided to leave it.

That's pretty epic. Those suckers like to eat the bird seed on the feeder, they make great target practice for my scope-equipped air rifle.

Oh man, I can vouch for the smell.

When I was a tire tech, we had a Toyota Previa come in, customer complaining of a bad smell. Turns out there was a dead rat on the undertray, just behind the radiator. So, not only did the smell eminate from the van, but the radiator fans blew it all around the shop. The rat was glossy black and dripping maggots all the way to the dumpster. Worst smell ever.

Those should fry up nicely, marinate for 30 minutes with some thirty weight first.
