MamaWise said...

Oh wow, once you see him holding it, that's when it hits you how big that thing is! Ok, I have the shivers now down my spine! I'd be so scared!

And happy WW to you!

Yen said...

Ewww..he's a brave young little man there:)

Shannon said...

I am grossed out. It looks like a snake or eel but is seriously slimy! Eeeew ick ick ick.
Pak Haryono called it a belut. I think it must be some sort of caecelian (a legless amphibian). He also said it was yummy if fried. At which point I felt my face do all sorts of strange movements, none of which could be considered polite or culturally sensitive.

Ewwweeeee! Boys are too funny, frealess I tell ya!

Gabriel said...

That thing is huge!!! And of course, me being a boy, I want one of them, so I can hold it and gross everybody out. :0)

Have a great WW!

What in tarnation is that? Tell the gardener he can keep whatever he finds in the yard from now on, LOL! Yeeesh.

I say Yeeesh now, but I used to loved that creepy crawly stuff when I was little too.

Happy WW! :D

Jessan said...

I just want to now what that is???
Happy WW=)

Well, Shannon, when you DO find out what it is for sure, you just HAVE to tell us. When I saw the first photo, I thought "worm" (big worm, LOL). Then I clicked on the photo to enlarge it, and decided no, not a worm. Not a snake either, though. Mystery!

Bobbie said...

Still puzzling over this critter: Maybe a fresh water eel??

si kiky said...

you know what, people in my country DO EAT THAT!
they will dry the eel, put some herbs and salt...then deep fry in hot oil!

TheVasquez3 said...

OH MY!!

is it an eel?

Lifecruiser said...

Eeek!!! It sure does look slimy. The first photo fooled me to believe it was an ordinary garden worm.

The second one freaks me out.

What the heck is it? A mutated worm? *giggles*

Shannon said...

Its an eel. I looked up belut in the Indonesian-English dictionary. It says eel. How the heck did an eel get in the garden??

Mama Grizzly said...

oh YUCK!!! The girl in me is really coming out....

Eve said...

I-i-ick! Double ick!!! I am NOT letting my grandsons see this one. No sense giving them ideas.

Today I'm Lookin' Out My Back Door.

Corey~living and loving said...

oh my....that right there is FREAKY! eeeeekkkkk!

happy WW! Thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog.

The only belut we have here in Hawaii is actually spelled "bAlut". It is hard to be culturally sensitive...Correct me if I'm wrong in any of this but it is a duck egg that is buried in the ground for about 15 days & then taken out and eaten. Not just any regular duck egg mind you, one that has a semi-developed fetus inside. At our swap meets, they sell them in huge pickle jars as snacks for passers by. Last week, when we left the swap meet there was a half eaten balut under my truck. (Keep in mind it is semi developed) It was the saddest, grossest thing I'd seen in a long time. It is however, a Filipino delicacy!

Natalie said...

Oh yuck! I'd fire the Gardner! Ew!

byrningbunny said...

Ewww. Gross. Is it a giant earth worm? garter snake? Your son must have been in heaven. lol

Geekymom said...
