there were a few asked questions as to what was my pic asked earlier.
at first glance i figured it was similar to hair grown in close proxy > nail material since it looked like that Guinness world record guy who keeps his nails in a bag to keep them from breaking off his fingers.
slight searching =
i found another web page
with more pics, a bit of info (who knows how accurate), and a futurama reference + pics. if anyone is more interested follow that link down the rabbit hole.
