I think the surest sign that there is intelligent life out there in the universe
is that none of it has tried to contact us.
Today’s mystery comes to us courtesy of Beth Howard, a friend and teacher extraordinaire in the Wilmington area. She found this in her yard and sent me a pic hoping I could help her figure out what it is and whether she needed to sell her house. In her message she asked – “What the heck is this? Is it some kind of alien life form or a carnivorous plant? That is a tunnel down through it.”
So, what do you think, and why? I’ll give you one clue…it smells a bit bad.
Melissa and I are happy to try to help solve your natural history mysteries (especially if you will allow me to post about it in this blog), so feel free to send me pictures of your alien life forms to roadsendnaturalist@gmail,com.
