Do Not Kill This Bug With Bare Hands, You Will Be Infected In Few Minutes!
A series of warnings have been circulating the Internet warning of a “new killer insect” from India that – when touched – results in horrific injuries, even death.
A number of similar versions of this warning have circulated online, most of which claim to depict both a photograph of the alleged killer insect as well as seemingly graphic photos of the injuries it apparently causes. Such injuries show either hands or arms inflicted with lots of tiny holes. The image of the insect most commonly shows an insect with a large number of small tube-like structures on its back.
All the warnings we have seen assert the insect was first spotted in India and is highly dangerous, and implore readers to avoid contact at all costs.
