At first sight I thought, it is a very odd shape of some mushroom. After all, it is the torrid zone and everything is possible. But on the second thought the body was attached to a fallen trunk and it is possible there was a twig and it grew on the twig. It was soft and wobbly and on the top surface it had the sort of hair, soft bristle. Most likely it is a saprophytic fungus (Hexagonia hydnoides).
