Could be a type of worm like a feather duster...I have many many worms like these channeling on my LR. Some have red plumes and some are grey and white...They disappear when I get close or startle them... Does this sound about right?

You can find alot of info on hitchikers at that site.

My first thoughts are a sponge (does it look loke a pineapple?

Could be a snail or slug...does it move?

Could also be some sort of worm or cuke.

Try that.

The smaller pic with text is about halfway down the page. It may also be another type of sponge, I'll keep looking for that one.
