Creepy alien-like creature filmed in Indonesia

One resident of Bali had the fear of his life when he discovered this strange criterion on his home’s ceiling.

Hari Toae defined the mysterious creature–which had a set of furry tentacle-like appendages protruding from its tummy–as “alien-like.”

“I will let it stay in my house, but only for the night,” he said. “I don’t want it to scare my guests away. It’s not something I’ve ever seen before. I don’t think it comes from this neighborhood.”

However, as it turns out, the uncommon visitor to Hari was in reality a harmless moth species known as the Creatonotos gangis, typically native to Australia and South-East Asia.

The tentacles are fragrance organs used by the moth to generate pheromones in order to attract a mate.
