It’s A Frog, It’s A Whale, It’s…


I came home from work and saw this odd formation. At first glance I thought it looked like a breaching whale Then I thought it looked like a frog climbing onto the roof.

Obviously it’s a big block of snow & ice that slid off my garage roof all in one piece. In all the years that I’ve lived in this house (30+), I’ve seen lots of configurations of snow sliding off the roof, much of it really beautiful, but I’ve never seen anything like this before. Clearly the weather conditions were just right to create this formation.

I know that as humans we’re programmed to see faces in inanimate objects. It’s called anthropomorphism.

Tell me: Is there a term for turning objects into animals?
