Description

Almost 2cm long. This thing wanders over the sand when the shore has a film of water on top of it (low tide). Sand needs to be very wet. They move fast and they bury themselves under the sand. They also eat dead fish, snails, shrimps, etc. The longer I've seen is around 1inch long.

Description

Very furry and small white caterpillar(beetle?) * At first, I didn't see it so I accidentally touch it with the back of my middle finger. At the beginning, it felt like the burning of a paper cut but gradually transformed into accute pain with a bit of itching. Here's when I searched for a reason and saw the caterpillar. The pain lasted for almost two days.

It was on a wall, I made it move on top of a conifer cone to take the picture. It was around 1.5 inches long.
