Your image is lacking in critical clarity, but it also beautifully illustrates a Crayfish (AKA Crawfish, Clawfish or Crawdad) in a threat position. Though not considered dangerous to humans, Crayfish will defend themselves with their claws and a large individual might deliver quite a pinch. We love the images on Ecns.cn of a Fight between cats and a crayfish.
Thank you! That’s exactly what it is. Just don’t know why it was in a parking lot no where close to water!
That is odd, though Crayfish can survive for long periods of time out of water.
