Obviously a dumped pet. The Presidio Trust has the Sisyphean task of stopping folks from doing this at Mountain Lake. I contacted Jon Young, Wildlife Biologist for the Trust. No doubt with all the hawks I saw around the lake this morning, this situation may work itself out "naturally"...

This was a big baseball-sized mass of what appeared to be eggs in hardened tubes the diameter of spaghetti. It did not feel soft - felt rough. Submerged just below the waterline. Really no clue what this is, could be fish or ?

About 1" across. Apparently it has lived so long on this submerged pipe that it adapted its shell to create the tightest fit! A flat limpet would have been eaten!
