“What manner o’thing is your crocodile?”: October 2016

A new crocodile mystery for a new month! Can you tell us what this is?


As always, please comment with your thoughts and guesses about our mystery image, and we’ll be back next week with the answer!


  • Definitely looks like that. However….maybe a sort of imprint or offset mark from a seal? Difficult to tell when we don’t have any idea of scale or size. There is a crease across it, which must have been made after the circular mark. There is also another smaller semi-circular mark to the left of the image, perhaps a smaller seal?
