Yuck! Is this a gall wasp thingy?


Luckily it's smaller than the pictures. I cut one open and it was fairly hard, looked like there might have been a tunnel in it too.
It also doesn't look quite as slimy in real life.Still, yuck.

Oh yeah, I forgot that I cropped out the leaf. It's on an oak tree, white oak I believe.

I just read to hang bird feeders from that tree as birds are natural predators.
