It reminds me of something that was once on the X Files – a fluke. Had a flatmate who was obsessed with that program and I always remember that episode.

I’ve never seen one of these things but it looks really fascinating – especially if it occasionally sticks it’s head out.

As a Trek nerd I thought it was a Doomsday Machine:

Thanks for posting – been meaning to google this for a while now! Saw one a few years ago in Hughes, and have found two in the last few weeks in Kambah.

Good to know!

The caterpillar makes this case and later turns into a moth.

Yes what poetix said, but I have not seen one for years………… Used to see them all the time when I was a wee girl.
