A friend snapped this picture of a worm-like creature in Big Santa Anita Canyon last week.

He estimated the length at 1-2ft.  

Can anyone help identify?  Thanks!

A quick search suggests a Horsehair Worm, but I will defer to our experts.

Sweet! I think your friend found an appendage of The Flying Spaghetti Monster.
