MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) It was slimy and wiggly, and beachgoers in Myrtle Beach were perplexed at the mysterious creature that they found crawling out of a tree trunk Tuesday afternoon.

Shortly before sunset, a large piece of wood washed up near Arcadian Shores in the Myrtle Beach section of Horry County. The sea creature crawled out of it along with a baby octopus. 

Photos and video captured that mysterious sea creature's actions as onlookers pondered what exactly it might be.

It couldn't be immediately identified, but a couple WMBF News viewers guessed it might be a sea cucumber or a sea worm. Do you think you might know what this is?
