What was even more weird was that this was inside a huge avocado fruit & it looked like a normal, but larger seed inside. I thought I'd take it home to grow, so decided to wash it, but the brown outer surface cracked open to reveal all these tentacles! 🐙 It was already growing inside the fruit! Maybe preparing for Halloween? 😁 @cyndi @kimguy @gjones @pelly @rachelbrooks

I reeeeeeally hope these are indeed plant roots and not some kind of avocado seed-eating worm..... 🤢

Getting creepier. Those tentacles are unfurling @cyndi but no sign of worms @sushiwaitress I think they are actually shoots, but time will tell. Just hope he's come in peace & doesn't get this mere earthling in the night! 🐙😁👽

If they do, they'll be in for a disappointment when they find just a lot of empty space 😂😂😂 @kimguy
