Sake Ding ding ding we have a winner! Oak gall it is, thank you very much! Just looked up pics of them and that is an exact match.

Kathyy Oak galls are filled with spongy material. Does that rot out once they fall off the tree? I think it looks like a gall too.

Well, I suppose it "could" rot away, but it certainly looks an awful lot like it. Can you go back to the location where you found them/others? Take note of the terrain, trees, other vegetation, etc. and see if there is some clue there that will help you.

Sake It's something from a plant on the the part sitting on the substrate you can see where it was attached to a stem, and the shell is wood like.

JunJunJenn It looks like an old egg with the hole where the animal came out...

CytoEric It actually looks like a puffball fungus to me...I find them in my grandmother's yard every once in awhile. The ones I've seen have a smooth outside, kind of a papery shell...the spores are all inside. If you stomp on them it'll make a cloud lol

ProndFarms It looks to be the shell of a Black Walnut. They are usually green on the tree, and turn slightly brown as they age. The hard shell of the walnut is inside this case, and inside the hard shell are the walnuts themselves.

Spiritwind You found it and stuck it in your tank? Cant say I know what it is but what kind of material? hard or soft?

Hmm I would just guess an orange peel lol. a coconut with all the fuzz gone off it. broken ceramic pot.


woops didnt realize you said seed pod up there.

Sake
Seed pod

Hey can anyone tell me what this is? My shrimp love it, they molt in it graze on it, and just generally hang out in/on it. If I can figure out exactly what it is, I'll go get a few more.Found it on a walk through the woods it was the only one around. Attachment 58279
