Any entomologists in the house? I saw a little piece of what I thought was lint on our downstairs bathroom vanity and then noticed it was moving. I looked closer at it and what I saw was really cool. A tiny little woven sleeping bag like thing about 5mm long and 1mm in diameter. Inside I could see a little worm like things head come out one side and then the other. The little dude then poked his head out and drug the little sleeping bag along with him. It moved around some and was pretty amazing. The little sleeping bag was white with holes at each end. The dude could turn around inside and put it's head out each way. The head was redish with what looked like a little beak. The body of the little wormy thing was white/translucent. He looked like he had 4 or six little catapiller like "legs" under him.

I watched him for a while and then realized my wife would freak the hell out if she saw this amazing little critter, so I flushed him down the toilet. I'm kicking myself for not taking pictures now. He was a pretty amazing little being.

Anyone know what this little thing was? I will definitely keep my eyes open for any others. It could easily be mistaken for a little piece of lint.

Nope, no blue scarf. What movie is that from?

Edit: Honestly, I had it under a 2 quart ice cream bucket for a couple hours before flushing it. One of my old college roomates is an entomologist. I was going to ask him but went into a panic thinking about my wife screaming and losing her mind.

Ya know, I could maybe have won the Nobel prize for discovering this little critter. If Obama can win one, I sure could for a sweater wearing worm. The insect. Not Obama.

My wife always says my bathroom is filthy. I guess this proves her correct.

Ahh, human nature. If we see something sublime, beautiful, unique in its particular arrangment of elements that compels us to stop for a moment and pause...we inevitably as a species follow up by destroying it in the most gleeful manner possible. One suspects this could well be a normal trait for intelligent species...in which case first contact with aliens should be avoided at any costs, as we're more than likely going to be the ones flushed down the toilet to the sounds of an alien saying "Well THAT was certainly pretty strange!"

?







i saw a worm with a gray shell. its small and has two holes on its shell. i was searching the net. and saw it was similar to the "sweetpea". By the way what is the technical term for the sweetpea worm you were saying? I'm just so curious what kind of worm was all over our house sticking to our walls. It just might be a "sweetpea" but a different type.

Good thing you caught it in the larval stage.

They can be a hand full when they get older.
