just popped up today

well its kind of hard too discribe because i cant get a proper view of it, there are about 3 - 4 green and black stringy things about an inch long and as thing as a couple pieces of hair, all i can see is them waving in the air and over the rock, im guessing that they cant move because there in the same place.

Could be some sort of spionid worm or vermetid gastropod - do the "hairs" extend from a match-stick like skeleton, or do they appear to come directly from within the rock?

There are worms that emit "threads" from the rock. Any way you can get a picture?

i try'd and they all turn out blurry, i know i have those worms that live in a little tube and have 2 things hangging out and anouther type that has the same sort of tube and things hangging out that look like roots but this looks really different and when i watch it, it looks like its waveing the 2" "arms" and looking for food.
