Right! Oh well, I guess there is no way of knowing as the images are too small. I may try and get back and take a closer photo. Think I can remember where it was!

Yes Pam but Leuba's only became crocs after the inhabitants left. Before that the look solid.

thanks martin, it looked like some sort of scale. Argy, would have liked it to be a pair of crocs, but I didn't see any openings! They looked solid.

This may simply be a black scale insect

Hi Pam. These might be similar to Leuba's plastic croc shoes - hers have been vacated but they are on large-leaved acacia...
