Check Out this Alien-Like Australian Maggot

A tourist in Australia posted video of a worm-like creature they came across while hiking, and it’s so creepy the Internet thought it was a hoax.  It looks like a tiny, flesh-colored corndog or pickle with a tail, and it moves like an inchworm.

An entomologist at the University of Sydney says it’s a rat-tailed maggot, and they’re necessary to the country’s ecosystem.  They’re also known to make their way INSIDE the human intestine . . . but only in places with bad water hygiene.
