Subject: Big hairy orange bug
Geographic location of the bug: Central Ohio, USA
Time: 09:09 PM EDT
We saw this bug while camping in central Ohio several years ago, and can’t find anything like it and are wondering what it is. It crawled along quite like a snail, but left no trail and had no shell. When it moved the leaf-like formations undulated in a wave-like motion.
