I was at my LSF today to pick up some ghost shrimp. In with the shrimp were several of these creatures. The staff had no idea what they were. They were picking at the moss balls. They looked like green worms with legs when they extended out of their shell. I have never seen anything like this before. They were super creepy looking. I thought they were sticks at first until I saw them moving. A5AEC085-1352-404B-985F-FFF3719F925C.jpegD0C848B2-5AC4-4285-AC35-CD5DFB0900ED.jpeg
