PENGHU, Taiwan — A Taiwanese fisherman captured something creepy on video, and now the footage is going viral.

Wei Cheng Jian shot the video of the strange green mass—which according to Youtube translates, he describes as a “green snot monster”—with what appears to be a long, pink tongue oozing along the concrete while he was fishing in the Taiwanese port city of Penghu.

Experts say the mass appears to be a type of ribbon worm.
