A MUM has freaked out over a creepy "alien egg" nesting in her son's wardrobe – but you'll laugh when you discover what the truth is.
Aussie mum-of-three Amy shared a photo of the bizarre egg-like object hanging from a friend's ceiling on Facebook.
She said her friend discovered the strange blob on her son's built-in wardrobe and had no idea what it could be.
Desperate for answers, Amy posted the image in the Family Lowdown Tips & Ideas Facebook page.
"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 in. Anyone any ideas what it is? And what they should do?"
Facebook users wasted no time in sharing their predictions, with many fearing it could be a spider's nest or worse.
"If this was a billion years ago, I’d say we have a dinosaur egg on our hands," one user quipped.
"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 in the hoover. If it is a spiders’ nest then there will be thousands in there," added another.
Others weren't so convinced, with a third writing: "Oh HELL no. I’d not be touching that full stop. Call Ghostbusters immediately!"
Another added: "I’d suggest a biohazard suit, insect spray, some form of fire, poke it and see what happens, at least you’re prepared."
So, what was it?
Still none the wiser, Amy called in her father-in-law to inspect the "egg", who told her what it really was.
Despite fears it was a swarm of insects or worse, it turns out the alien-like object was "expanding foam" from the roof of the home.
Facebook users were "gutted".
"Is it wrong that I’m sort of disappointed? I was so looking forward to something exciting," one posted.
Another added: "Well that was an anticlimax!”
