This is a totally gross post straight out of the “Outer Limits”, but I am determined to identify this alien creature growing in my yard!!!
If you are squeamish you have time to leave now. I made sure to write a lot so the pictures wouldn’t be immediately seen. I’m also using this weird font because…well, this is a weird post!
Caroline discovered these ‘extraterrestrial lake monsters’ on Thanksgiving morning. She came in and told me we had an octopus growing in the front of the house and insisted that I take a look at it. I wish I had taken a picture then. It was standing up about 5” out of the ground…all proudly branched out – looking a lot like, uh, an octopus!
We went back outdoors together and I'm sure you could hear us ‘grossing out’ all over the neighborhood! These things were growing straight up and to me they looked just like crab leg clusters. We could tell they were
growing hatching from a white bulb that looked a lot like a soft round egg (mushroom texture). There were little white eggs, partially out of the ground, that just begged for some stick probing, so I obliged them and started examining them closer. I expected to be grabbed up by a giant octopus waiting in a flying saucer and taken directly to Outer Octopusville!!! My test revealed that the eggs held these little unborn things, in a perfect fetal position! Caroline screamed, which scared the *@%#%^@*$ out of me! I dropped the stick and we both ran for safety!! We startled G-Man pretty good with our scream-laughing and door slamming! Of course, we made him go look at them. He wasn’t as disturbed, but he had never seen before either.
This is just plain creepy, I tell you!! Not to mention GROSS!!
So, what on earth is this? Does Anyone know?
These pictures were taken four days after I dug them up so they have dried up a lot.
An ‘unborn’ egg is below the one that is partially hatched.
What the heck is this stuff...it’s really creeping me out!
And what is that stuff between the appendages??? SICK!
Here is one still in the fetal position! YUCK!!! I know TMI - Sorry
I sure hope someone knows what this is. And, I am sorry if this gives you nightmares!!!!
But, watch your backs…you might just have Alien Octopi growing in your yard, too!
