    If you look at my hammer on the left, towards the bottom it has tentacles sticking out that looks exactly like the frogspawn on the right. The two are right by each other and touch all day. Is this some sort of weird cross breeding thing? Or are those just baby hammer tentacles that look exactly like the frogspawn?

    At first I thought it was a frogspawn tentacle that detached and got stuck on the hammer, but after a closer look it’s definitely attached. And there are actually more than one of these growing on the hammer.

    Soooo... this is referred to already as a "frammer" :)

    I have one with 5 heads... when you can't decide between a hammer or a frogspawn...there's always a framer. Why choose?!
