This unusual animal caused confusion at a home in Indonesia after it was seen crawling over the roof.
Mortgage holder Hari Toae saw the’alien-like’ being running over the ceiling in Bali a month ago. It had two wings, four tentacles of varying lengths and appeared as though it was moving upside down with its legs holding on to the ceiling.
Hari said the animal appeared to be looking for a safe place to stay because it had been rainy that night. He said: ‘I will let it stay in my house, but only for the night. I don’t want it to scare my guests away.’
Hari said he had been not able to distinguish the winged critter however joked that it ‘looked like an alien’. He further added: ‘It’s not something I’ve ever seen before. I don’t think it comes from this neighborhood.’
The answer remains unclear, but it could be part of a family of moths called the Arctiinae.
