The brown thing looks like a large cone, partly stripped of scales. Vegetable not animal. The "fork" at the top looks artificially placed.
If you magnify the lower bit it is clearly a bit of vegetation in my view.
If it was alive, how did it move - legs, body side to side, body up and down? What was the texture - hard, slimy, soft?
I think this is Spoofus absurdicus, apparently they make very good eating but are a bit hard to swallow.
I think you nailed it there.
my grandad once caught one of these, apparently. It was a foot long and its stomach was full of christmas decorations

Agreed Spoofus - but not sure of the species :-)
