Out catching fry today at the quarry and I netted some things that I really didn't want. Anyone know what these aquatic nasties are? First one, clear jelly tubes. Not frog eggs or any other kind of eggs, but long tube things with faint rings. Some kind of amoeba? Brain eating amoeba? If so, I am safe... Nothing to eat.
Second is this handsome walking stick-like insect that appears to breathe out of it's butt. About 3 3/4" long. Nasty thing I didn't want to touch. Anyone know what these are?
