Slug-like creature ‘with rat tail’ baffles resident


Residents were baffled when a bizarre slug-like creature with a long-tail was spotted crawling on their bedroom wall.

Thawiwat Sangnoi said the slimy creature had a rat-like tail and worm-like body when they saw it inside their house in Roi Et province, Thailand on September 20.

He said: ‘I got goosebumps looking at that thing, I have no clue what it is. It looked like an alie.’

The creature turned out to be a rat-tailed maggot which turns into hoverflies. They use their long tails to move into water.
