What is this thing? I’ve never seen anything like it.

At first I thought some weirdo mangled a bat...But it doesn’t look like it’s in pain.

Any ideas?

Some freaky kind of radiated caterpillar?

Thanks!

peace

Hi, i think that it is some sort of animal with something pasted on top of it.. like a turtle.. The upper side of him doesnt seem very connected with his movement.. There are some sort of horns on the side.. but they look completely unrelated and artificial..

Edited: At 00:28 you can see the front of the shell.. That thingy that comes out is definitely his head coming out..

It's on a blade of grass, right? It reminds me of some sort of brown mealy-bug, which are typically white.

Freaky though for sure.

Edit: removed picture.

Im suprised nobody is poking it with a stick or pouring cola on it.

But it definately looks like that Hag moth thing.

Why would they do that?

That thing is bizarre and freakishly scary.

Do they bite ?

I think in another thread where some weird creature had been found, the first thing they'd done was poke it with a stick and then pour coke on it...

Some people..

ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww that just ewwwww lol

from the wiki link gemwolf posted, i belive someone asked if they bite?


The hag moth (Phobetron pithecium), is a moth of the family Limacodidae. Its larvae is known as the monkey slug.

here is one generation a year in the north, but two or more in southern USA (Wagner, 2005).

The larva is distinctive, with no close analogues although it may be mistaken for the shed skin of a hairy spider or leaf debris. It has six pairs of curly projections, three long and three short from the flattened body, each densely covered in hairs. According to Wagner (2005), who experimented on himself, the hairs do not sting, contrary to popular belief. However, susceptibility can vary among humans and it may produce a reaction in some people. Some members of the family Limacodidae do sting. Like all limacodids, the legs are shortened and the prolegs are reduced to suction cups. The 'arms' can fall off without harming the caterpillar. Maximum length of larvae, 2.5 cm.

It is solitary and is not a very significant agricultural threat, but it is a common[ sight in orchards.

[edit] Pupa

Pupates in a cup-shaped coccon with a circular escape hatch.

[edit] Adult

The adult moth has a wingspan of up to 3 cm. The male has translucent wings, and the female is drab brown and gray, with yellow puffs on her legs. The day-flying female is said to mimic a bee, complete with pollen sacs, and the male mimics a wasp


seems they dont bite but can sting, did u read the bit about how they can mimic bees and wasps


ewwwwwwwwwwwwww again, didnt know they could walk liek that though?

It looks like a mutilated bat to me, and it moves like a mammal, not robotic like an insect. Poor thing.Very few insects actively smell the ground.

To be honest it would have been funny if it had evil dead 2 over the top of it, especially the part where it goes

JAKE
What the hell was that?

ASH
Maybe something trying to force its way into our world.

It definately looks unworldly, even demonic like. I certainly wouldn't like to meet one of these devil moths

Yah, you see the 'poking it with a stick' thing all the time in sci-fi movies. I personally wouldn't because who knows what will happen??? And of course in scifi movies, such things usually do happen after the idiots do poke 'it' with a stick! *lol*
Pouring coke on it though, that is weird, although not all that unpredictable either. Coke is pretty caustic. The pourer probably was the type to burn up ants with a magnifying glass too.

It is almost like human instinct. Don't know what it is?Poke it with a stick.
Even if we know what it is we still poke it with a stick.
You think someone would paton critter pokers.
And I admit I am pretty guilty of it myself.
Lets see what the rattlesnake does when we poke it with a stick.

Ya, I think bat, but with horribly shredded wings. Pretty sure that green bit is a palm leaf, and not a blade of grass...

I babelfished the title of the video to see if it might say what it is, and got the totally adorable "Foreign discovery unclear terrorist organism, doubts for the variation result."

Because people are overwhelmingly strange and messed up, and would want to know if the poor creature wiggled when they poked it or disenigrated if they poured something on it.
