Strange shadows in Pentax K-x

Hi, I was taking some pictures in a cave in Sri Lanka. I took 3 pictures on a tripod, and the last image have this strange shadow in the upper right hand corner. This never occured before and didn't happen again. Is this a sensor problem, static electricity or some terrestial being messing with my camera ?

It looks to me like it's just the way the scene was lit.

Your right Aurelle, I did a check on the shadow. The bottom edge do looks like the sewn bottom of a t shirt. Thank you all for your helps

Relax, it's only the latent ghost of a Tamil Tiger haunting the cave.
