Found 9/20/08, 4 in. total in length.
Left side in pic (bulbous end) was clear plastic with black, green and brown spots seeming to float inside the plastic sack @ 1.5 in.
Middle was 1-1.25 in. and sickly yellow stretched thin with blow out on side.
Right end was twisted/braided and pinky-biege, @ 1.5 in.

After no one could identify this thing, I took pictures on 3rd day by which time the whole thing was the sickly yellow.

??  Thanks!

Looks a bit like a glass-eel.

Your picture isn't reely good  [:)] , so I could be wrong.

Hi,

what is a glass eel?  where do they come from?  What else can you tell me about them? 

I have better pictures but they are too large for this site.

Thanks,

Jan
