Vark of Aard

I took a walk in suburbia the other day, and I was surprised at how many things were imprinted in the sidewalk by people (presumably residents of suburbia) who, over the years, could not resist the lure of fresh concrete. Mostly, I saw footprints, animal tracks, and names–enough that I considered doing a typology, just from a 20-minute walk. But the imprint you see above didn’t fit neatly into a category… what do you think it is? It sure looks like some kind of anteater to me.

Now, why would someone etch an aardvark into the sidewalk…?
