    For the past few years I have been studying and trying to figure out this one strange caterpillar-like worm
    It's hard to describe, but I finally got one large enough to get a clear picture of it and this is it
    Beware it's very ugly
    Anyone have any ideas what it is?

    They were caught, I finally caught 2 of them, both about the same size and both just as ugly

    you trying to drown it?

    maybe put it in jar
    give it some twigs and leaves, for shelter and food
    then put it somewhere warm and see if it evolves into a kakuna or medapod or it might be a new type
    i will ask oak

    It lives in water and doesn't change from what I can tell.

    After some time of research and jumping from link to link I found it
    It's a Crane fly larva.
    Well now that I know what it is, I am requesting a lock...although I wonder how long it takes to change [​IMG] ,but that wasn't the point of this thread, so requesting lock
