Thanks anyway but the sea cucumber isn't the answer. I tried google but ??? This creature does have a name. It's been thirty years since I sat through biology. Never had a mushroom of death but I used to have a lot of fun with the ones that grow out of cow patties down in south Texas.

Most people say they have difficulty finding mushrooms of death, but really it isn't that hard. Just come to Britain, we got bloody loads of them!

It's a land animal. I don't want to have to call my old bio prof at MIT. It would be too embarrassing not to remember this one. I hope he's not reading this.

Don't owls regurgitate pellets of digested food?

Not sure about the other end though!

Maybe this has something to do with living things not being able to live in 2 dimensions!!
