Not sure what it is, but the Silver Gulls were fighting over it.

Oh dear, well I hope the lures are based on an actual critter, cos one of the gulls ended up eating this thing! Actually, I'm pretty sure I saw it wriggling too.

I'm pretty sure this is a fishing lure designed to imitate a prawn or yabby.
