Found in the middle east

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Biology.SE! Interesting creature, can you add more information about the local environment and specify where in the middle east you found this? Also, what do you mean by "soft shell" — do you mean that the (sandy?) casing is flexible? $\endgroup$ – tyersome Jul 13 '19 at 22:48
  • $\begingroup$ Looks like a plaster bagworm (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phereoeca_uterella) $\endgroup$ – D. Halsey Aug 5 '19 at 23:40
