CAPE LOOKOUT, N.C. - If you've been to Cape Lookout recently, you may be wondering what a mysterious object found on the beach is. Cape Lookout National Seashore is wondering, too.
The park posted on Facebook about a "mysterious mass" that was found on the beach a few months ago.
While park officials think it may be "something like the egg sacks of a squid," they say they're not totally sure and are asking the public to help identify it.
The object is described as "a mass of finger-shaped clear sacks holding white eggs."
A number of commenters seem to agree that it is a mass of eggs, with one saying it belongs to an inshore squid family Loliginidae.
Do you know what it may be?
