      Who was posting the "Know your dog poo" pics??? This was very innocent looking to the naked eye...maybe a 1/4 inch long. Mag it up and it appears quite menacing.

      I just had one of these dug out of me and a Google image search led me to here. Much better photo than I was able to get! Well done.
