Frog that breaks its bones to create claws.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

Wow. What will they think of next?
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Who is this "they" you speak of? ;)

The claws in the picture hardly look big enough to do any damage... maybe they're like spidy's claws for climbing brick buildings?

What a crazy world. It is even better that the claw mechanism is so unique!!! And they think the tissue grows back... awesome.
