What type of squash is this

Random plant grew in garden this year...thought it was from butternut squash I grew last year but clearly doesn't look like one...what could it be?

Re: What type of squash is this

Volunteer squash are most often hybrids. The bees visit all the flowers and bring pollen form other varieties. Hey, all you can do is let it grow then harvest and try it. Many of the hybrids I have eaten have been excellent.
