This is the creepy moment hundreds of caterpillars were found living under a thick web around a tree.

Ball Wasan was hiking near his home when he found the bizarre insect nest in Chumphon province, Thailand on November 4.

The local took a stick and pulled some of the web out which exposed more caterpillars hidden inside.

He said: ‘It was the first time I saw such strange nest. They were all together inside like a huge caterpillar family.’
