While walking outside my house, I noticed a squashed carcass on the road. On closer inspection, and from the look of its tail, this looked like a rat. So being morbid me, I snapped a picture of it. I continued taking pictures of it about every 12 hours. Eventually, someone must've cleaned up the roadkill, because it wasn't there on the third day.
"Enjoy" these pictures!
Judging by the state of the body, including the redness of that organ that's sticking out, I think this was soon after it got struck by a vehicle.
About 12 hours later. Still mostly intact, but much flatter.
About 24 hours later. And I think that dark stain on the road surface is from the body.
About 36 hours later. Flies were buzzing around, but I still stooped down to get the picture.
