What exactly is this thing ? Image Credit: Instagram / _harryhayes
A jogger recently came across this indescribable creature and nobody seems to know what on Earth it is.
Harry Hayes had been running through the Marrickville suburb of Sydney on Monday morning when he came across this 'blob' lying on the pavement in water that had pooled from the recent rain.

Intrigued by the discovery and keen to find out what it was, he grabbed some pictures and video footage and uploaded them onto social media to see if anyone else could identify the creature.

"My gut says it's some kind of embryo but with Covid, World War III, and the floods [going on right now] this could very well be an alien," he said.
The post quickly went viral, with news outlets and social media groups picking up on the story.

As things stand, however, nobody seems to know what on Earth the creature actually is.

The issue is not whether this is an embryo and probably not even the phylum, but the family. It looks to me like it has a backbone and forelimb. There is a head with an eye. The large pouch is the egg sac on which the embryo is living. It even appears to have a forelimb. †

He couldn't pick it up in a cup or something, and take it in to some marine place, like an aquarium?† Overall, looks sort of squid-like.† Cool find, but not likely an "alien".

Seems to me pretty obvious its some kind of bivalve mollusk with the shells removed. The tentacle is the foot it uses to move about. Looks muscular, so probably a sand digging kind. Maybe a kind of clam.†
