Today's What is it? Giant bug sack edition

A small branch from my Douglas fir tree fell onto the deck and had this attached to it. About three inches long and wet right now, it's a pretty strong sack kinda like avacado skin that has a bunch of squishy stuff inside with lumps, like some kinda insects are in there.

Any ideas?

I'm guessing its from the very top of the tree, which would be about 200' up. Its a different world up there, with giant timber beetles in the summer.

Looks like it just needs to be dried, it's already been rolled for him. It's just a bit of a fatty.

I'd be extremely surprised if you have 200' tall trees in your yard, not saying they aren't around, but that is pretty damn high.

I'd like to be proven wrong with some pics though.

I've been up a few with 48"+ bases that were not that tall. Most firs dont get that big anymore due to logging.

Unfortunately, they are brain eating spiders and have already starved to death trying to find any brain matter in Screwzer or his ilk.

Most likely. I found one a year or two ago and put it in a container but it never hatched.

To be sure you could always hack it open

Screwy, you brought that into you house and placed in on something you use to prepare your food?

Might want to enroll in a food safety class down at the old CC. Just sayin'.
