What's in your snorkel?

I recently went spearfishing (free dive) but it was a spontaneous trip and my snorkel didn't make it into my gear bag. Fortunately my friend I was with had an extra one and offered it to me. As we were gearing up I was getting ready to put my mouth to the mouth piece when I (thankfully) decided to look into the snorkel first and guess what was there....a dead mouse!!!! UGHHHHHH!!!! I almost threw up! I thought about it later that I should've gotten a picture to post on here but I was so grossed out all I could think about was getting rid of it!! And no, I didn't use the snorkel!!
So I'm wondering if anyone else has found anything unsafe/disgusting in their snorkel and what was it? I heard of someone who had fiberglass insulation in theirs. Definitely a lesson learned for me!

Re: What's in your snorkel?

I found a bunch of rat poison in my dive gear once. I guess the mice thought that turnabout was fair play.
