What is this thing?

Postby EmmVeePee » Wed May 25, 2005 2:14 am

I put this in the Botany section, but I don't think that is the best place for this. So I deleted it and moved it here

Try photobucket or something, the account is suspended.
Edit, it works now.

Are you sure? Works for me but it may be in my cache.

I don't have a bandwidth limit so I don't know why you would get that message.

Didn't see the edit =/

That looks extremely strange. I couldn't say I know what it is. It looks like some sort of amphibian, but that just may be the wonder of nature :D- in disguise. Hope someone knows what this is.. It's interesting.

Emm, do you know where it lives? Is it beside you? And is it noticeably growing? Hmm..

There are a few of them that are living in this one tree by my front walk way. I'll take a picture of the tree (Not sure on what species of tree it is)

Wow! That's really, really interesting for me, somehow. It looks as if it may be new- as I've never seen anything like it. Can't anyone identify it? It's strange. What part of the world do you live in?

I live in the Suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Deciduous forest really.

My guess is some sort of fungus with a sort of relationship with that type of tree. I have 3 of those bushes and the one has 5, the one 50 feet from it has 2 and 1/2 (Pics will explain) and the 3rd bush doesn't have any.

I have pictures of the bush.

The texture of it changed since yesterday since it is a lot more wet than yesterday.

So I went to go take more pictures of them.. and they aren't there! Dun dun dun! Ehh, just kidding.

I'm hoping uploading the pictures into a directory will save my bandwidth to those that care, instead of putting IMG tags and making everyone view em. It's basically more of the same.

But this species looks like something you'd find in the middle of the ocean =/ Or on the cover of a Biology book.

That's amazing. Is it part of the tree? Like, is it positioned the same way as a plant is? Does it move? Does it react to movement?

It looks as if it has eyes, also. Has it grown anymore over the past couple of weeks?

Thanks for the answering of my questions.
