  3. It looks like a messed up version of “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.”

    Janis: Ouch! Poor thing! Wouldn’t you think he’d have noticed something like that though? :)

  6. Whatever it is.. cocoon or otherwise.. I’d snip it off before it had a chance to damage that tree or any surrounding it.

    If it’s a cocoon then you can take the budding branch it’s hooked too and pop it into a jar then wait and watch to see what pops out of it. Safer for everything that way.
