"Headless" feather duster

I have no idea about this, I came home and found my feather duster without "head", all my fish are reef safe.

Any idea?

It's possible it's just in the tube, if your showing a before and after then I'd say that's where it is. Mine darts in and out whenever it feels like it then slowly comes out.

Convict is probably right but if a feather duster is unhappy it will drop its crown which if kept under the right conditions will regrow

Mines the same. Head is in the sand. It darts in and out as it sees fit.
