Strange pods


New finds freshly delivered to MOSE from X394 have included a number of podlike pieces, somehow reflecting a growth stasis due to desiccation or a process yet to be discovered. Tests have revealed that there is some biofauna link with the material. It is unknown whether the soft pale version is a due to its juvenile or senescent status. The rough external surface contrasts with the smooth darker interior and further research into associated finds might reveal interior forms that have left the pods.
