An unusual creature filmed hanging on a ceiling ‘looking like an alien’ has baffled locals.
The oddity was spotted in a home in Bali, Indonesia , but the resident had no idea what it was.
Appearing to cling to a curtain runner, half of it looks like a translucent cricket, and the other a hairy jellyfish.
Hari Toae guessed the strange animal was staying in his home to avoid the rain that evening.
He said of his unusual discovery: “”I will let it stay in my house, but only for the night.
“I don’t want it to scare my guests away.”
Hari was unable to identify what the winged creature was or where it came from but he has joked that he thought that it “looked like an alien.”
”It’s not something I’ve ever seen before,” he said.
“I don’t think it comes from this neighbourhood.”
The ‘alien’ is actually believed to be a creatonotos gangis, a species of arctiine moth.
