CLOSED: Caterpillar-Type Insect for Identification!


This weird thing has been climbing up my wall for a while now. The black dot appears to be its head and it's only a couple centimetres long. The black dot "stretches" a few millimetres out of it's body, latches on to the wall, and pulls the body upwards. This appears to be how it gets around. It's body appears to have odd hairs on it too.

I'm not sure what this might be, I've never seen one before! I hope someone can point me in the right direction as to what it is, or at least what species it is. I just hope it isn't dangerous is all!
