This definitely seems to be the year of all bugs...
After my little adventure with the inchworm (which I presume is now living an happy and peaceful life in the garden outside), yesterday I found yet another weird bug in my room (I still have it and am trying to find a camera).
I'll try to describe it... imagine something 1 millimeter wide and 5 millimeters long, rectangular, grey, resembling part of a carpet (that plastic material in the bottom of some carpets), covered in dust (which I assume is part of its camuflage).
How it moves: actually, what I described isn't the *real* bug... this is kind of a carapace... the real worm is inside, and only about 2 millimeters of it come out at a time, hold on to something and pull the rest of it (nice way of moving, uh?) When it senses someone (don't ask me how, I don't think it has eyes) it quickly disappears (inside the carapace).
The worm inside is white and has a tiny black head (if not black, at least dark).
I get more and more bedazzled by nature each day that goes by
You wouldn't know what kind of bug this is, would you?
