Backpacker Finds Mysterious Wormlike Creature

Mysterious footage of an ‘alien’ creature with a wormlike body and a tail like a rat’s has whipped the internet into a frenzy.

Israeli backpacker Guy Shlomi, 26, posted the skin-crawling clip online after encountering the squirming creature on Lake Bolac, in Victoria’s Western District, Australia.

Guy claims he plucked the unidentified creature from the ground with his bare hands before taking to social media to discover what species it was.

But the 26-year-old’s post left many baffled, with some suggesting it was an ‘alien’ and others proposing the footage was part of an elaborate internet hoax.
