Is it attached or does it move? If attached it is a cacoon, probably that of the pus caterpillar, aka of what is known in Texas as an asp. A DANGEROUS caterpillar.

Yikes! I remember learning about (and seeing tons of) asps when I was a kid. I’m gonna pull this thing off with some gloves and toss it. Thanks!
