Something strange in the woods

My eye was caught by what looked like a bunch of eels. Close up they could be the remnants of the alien monster from a B movie.

Possibly alien monster but

Possibly alien monster but perhaps more likely a clump of fungi that is past its best, suspect no chance of getting an ID other than fungi.
