Australia is the land of many scary things -- giant spiders, monster snakes and alien-looking worms -- but this moth is arguably the scariest of them all.
A video purportedly showing a creepy-looking moth has sent the Internet into a frenzy.
The insect from hell (it has to be from hell, right?) appears to have the body of a moth, and that's basically the only normal thing about the moth - BECAUSE IT HAS FOUR FURRY TENTACLES SPROUTING OUT OF HIS ABDOMEN!
Don't believe us? Have a look for yourself:
The video, which was reportedly filmed in Indonesia, has since been widely shared on social media, leaving Netizens terrified to even check under their beds for bugs.
Hey, if we found this moth in our home, we would gladly surrender our keys and move out.
The scary-looking insect has since been revealed to be a Creatonotos Gangis
(probably stands for 'Your Worst Nightmare') moth.
According to this website
, the moth is usually found in Australia and certain parts of Southeast Asia.
Oh, what are those creepy tentacles sticking out of its abdomen, you ask? Well, those are its scent organs
called coremata, which they use to attract mates.
We don't know about you, but what insect would be attracted to those things?!
We're just really glad that we don't have the Creatonotos Gangis
a.k.a the Hell Moth here in Malaysia.
