Woman finds mysterious ‘egg’ in her home and people warn her not to touch it

A woman found a mysterious ‘egg’ growing in her home and posted a picture of it online in an effort to find out what it was, and soon people were warning her not to touch it.
The mother, named Amy, found the bizarre item in her son’s wardrobe and couldn’t figure out what it was, so she shared it with a friend who put an image of it on Facebook.
As the Daily Star reports, the family had only just moved into the home so they didn’t know whether it had been there for a while, or had grown quickly.
But soon, internet users were coming up with horrifying theories about what it could be, with one speculating it was a ‘dinosaur egg’, and others warned the mother not to touch it.
The initial post on the Family Lowdown Tips & Ideas page reads: “This is inside my friend’s son’s wardrobe. They don’t know if it’s always been there and they’ve never seen it or if it’s just appeared. They’ve not long moved.
“Anyone any ideas what it is? And what they should do?”
Some feared the “egg” could be home to spiders, while others came up with any even more outlandish suggestion.

One said: “If this was a billion years ago, I’d say we have a dinosaur egg on our hands.”
Another added: “My other half was in pest control and he believes it’s a spiders’ egg nest. You can (vacuum) it up and then put a load of raid (to kill spiders) in the hoover.
“If it is a spiders’ nest then there will be thousands in there.”
A third put forward: “I’d suggest a biohazard suit, insect spray, some form of fire, poke it and see what happens at least you’re prepared.”
Another exclaimed: “Oh hell no. I’d not be touching that full stop. Call Ghostbusters immediately!”
After an investigation by Amy’s father-in-law, it was discovered that the egg-shaped substance was simply “expanding foam” from the roof of the house, despite fears it was a swarm of insects.
