Expert Response


This appears to be a dried and dead frog. If you have a pet, maybe a cat, it could have brought it inside, or it came in through a small opening in the house and couldn't find its way back out or to water and dried up. 

It shouldn't be a problem or a common occurence, but you can look for any areas like a sump pump drain or similar, or other areas where it could have gotten inside and try to seal those up. 

Let us know if you have other questions.

Thank you. Several friends posted frog, but those skinny things that look like mantis legs threw me. I do have a dog.
