What is this? Looks artificial but...
I found this on my pepper yesterday when I picked it. It looks too artificial to be biological to me. It had two identical silver "caps" at the end with seventeen sections in between. When I went to remove it it didn't move, just flaked off section by section (you can see the sections in the photos by counting the red dots).
Any ideas? It has my wife pretty weirded out, and frankly me too.
I've tried scouring the internet to as well as this site no avail. I apologize if I missed a similar post.
