    I have it on a piece of lined paper for scale. It looks like some kind of a worm with a fibrous sheath. The thing can scoot itself along fairly well; although, not as fast as a bug with legs. I occasionally will find these stuck to the wall inside my house. :confused:

    Try repairing permissions. That should get rid of it.

    What I'm wondering is if it hatches out into something with wings; like a moth or something. :confused:

    Oh, it's nothing! The population at large was no at no point in time exposed to any bio risk whatsoever and the authorities have absolute control over the phenomenon and have contained the organism in hour home. You and your family stay close and no one will get hurt.
    As of today your local health authorities will supply you with free food, as you are asked not to leave your premises until further notice. Mostly you will receive different varieties of pizza, as this is about the only food they can slip under your door.
