Incredible Video Of A Strange Insect Goes Viral, Netizens Ask 'what Is This?'

“It’s a wonder! What creature is this? Looks like somewhere between a grasshopper and a spider”, commented a user shocked at the creature's appearance.


A video of a bizarre green creature spotted crawling on a tree has baffled the internet. Shared on Twitter by the Indian Forest Services officer Parveen Kaswan, the video shows a long-legged strange bug that resembles a katydid slowly moving on the branch of a tree. The video was shot by a woman named Maria Chacon.

Kaswan wrote in the caption that nature is filled with details that people fail to observe. He challenged the audience online that they must have never come across this creature in their lifetime. Users were aghast at the absurdity of the grasshopper-like insect guessing what could it be. “It’s a wonder! What creature is this? Looks like somewhere between a grasshopper and a spider”, wrote a user. “Had seen a simpler version that looked like a straw of dry grass until it started moving. This one is a much more complex and beautiful version”, wrote another guessing the insect’s species.
