The strange creature looks like "an alien life form that has got lost on earth" after it was seen creeping around rocks.
Huang Meilan filmed the mysterious insect on rocks in Hsinchu, Taiwan on August 29.
She said she was ''shocked'' by the creepy crawly and had ''never seen anything like it before''.
Huang said: ''I found this on the ground and it caught my eye. ''It was so strange and people said different things about it. But I wanted to know what it actually was.''
Huang appealed online and many suggested the brittle looking insect appeared to be several ''horsehair worms'' tangled together.
The parasitic creatures become entwined while they use a host to breed.
