At some point long ago, there were other forms of life. Somewhere out there in the universe, there might be other forms of life.

But as some on Twitter see it, those extraterrestials are here now.

Butterfly conversationist Dan Hoare posted photos of "alien eggs" on Twitter, and he got enough responses to make Justin Bieber's mentions envious.

He captioned the photo, "Alien eggs hatching in the new forest: the wonderfully weird Devil's Fingers."

So what are they?

Clathrus archeri, also known as Devil's Fingers, are the red-tentacles that grow from an egg-like sac and are actually a fungus, according to the Daily Mail.

The photo was snapped at the New Forest in Hampshire, England, so there's nothing to fret over in the states.

At least not yet.
