found this vid on youtube was posted 2 months ago... this thing is weird... but notice the low buzzing like a wind up toy and also notice how the legs
that it uses to walk dont fully touch the floor which looks to me as if it's a well crafted toy on wheels... but check it out and lets hear some of
your theories on it...
I tend to lean toward an artificial thing too..... I watched the different segments of the "'pede" and some of them seem to move perfectly the same
each time. Also, is that a lampost? DANG! I hope not. That's a big critter, if so. The poster of that vid had another featuring weird
creatures, some of which I am certain have been debunked. That doesn't mean this one is a fake also.
Okay, so having said that, here's where it would be appropriate for someone to pop on and tell us that this is a chilopada of some sort.
OH. Brother. Anyone notice what looks like a seam on the side facing us? It looks like it's a little animal wearing a weird fur suit. A puppy?
I dunno, but that is no centipede. They made it out of faux fur from the fabric store. Look close. Seriously; is it just me, or is that fur?
So this caterpillar is actually found in (at least parts of) Texas? I'd have a hard time running around barefoot outdoors, knowing something like
that was inching around! And to think, I've encouraged my son to handle the little fuzzy caterpillars around here, to help him shake his fear of
I live in Texas, and we have those things around here. They arent big, only about an inch long. We call them asp's here, and we have always been told
not to touch them as they are poisonous. I have seen them multiple times around plants and bushes, and they tend to just wander around. Just leave
them alone in you find one, and im sure they will leave you alone too.
