Bloke posts video of these f**ken strange critters, sparks huge online debate
Whether you want to think of it as a specific place or a concept in the broad sense, you can’t deny that nature’s weird and f**ken wonderful at the best of times.
Whether you’re in the forest, in the desert, or in the bloody kitchen, it’s able to throw some pretty strange critters at you.
Add to that the fact scientists are still discovering new species all the bloody time, and it’s no wonder the folks in this video have no f**ken idea what these strange little wriggling things are…
We’ll start with some context for you. That way you’ll have all the information you need to hazard a guess at what these little creatures might be.
So, first of all, Tim Clerke, a bloke from Auckland in New Zealand, sent the internet into a bloody frenzy when he posted his video.
“My mother found these on the kitchen floor this morning. One is still alive. Anyone know what they are? Nikki is horrified and will have nightmares for weeks!”
We’re guessing that Nikki is either the bloke’s mother or missus, but remember that’s just a guess. It could be his imaginary friend or his sentient goitre. There’s really no telling at this point.
Anyway, there does seem to be a couple of theories doing the rounds.
The first, which seems to have been discredited already, is that they could be specimens of the delightfully named, rat-tailed maggot.
If so, that’d be s**t.
Those b**tards can cause myiasis in humans and that’s just bad f**ken news.
The second theory, which seems to be the accepted one at the moment, is that they’re actually moth legs.
An entomology team from New Zealand – which means they pronounce it as an ‘intomology team’ initially put this idea forward and Sarah Tassell, collection manager of the New Zealand Arthropod Collection at Manaaki Whenua Landcare Research, said, “If you look at the photos you can see that what you are looking are jointed legs. They are hairy and have some distinctive spines.”
Despite all of that, some people reckon it’s just bulls**t and a hoax. Notably, the University of Auckland gave this one the big ‘yeah, nah, f**k off, dickhead.’
Final thought: The only question left to ask is what the f**k do you blokes and blokettes reckon they are? We’re pretty stumped, but it could be what happens when a rat f**ks a frog and the frog has tadpoles. Or ratpoles. You decide. Either way, let us know in the comments.
