Is this the real life Alien? Worm explodes out of body of praying mantis

 This unbelievable footage shows the gruesome moment a worm bursts through the dead corpse of a praying mantis in a scene akin to the classic Sci-Fi film .
The video shows the praying mantis walking across the floor while the person holding the camera prods it before killing it with insect repellant. 
But seconds later something can be seen moving at the rear of the insect and then a huge worm bursts out and wriggles across the floor.
Experts shown the video by German newspaper Bild said it was clearly a parasite that had been eating alive the praying mantis.
They said it appeared to be a horsehair worm or Nematomorpha.
The praying mantis is a protected insect in Germany where it is extremely rare but it is not clear where the video was shot. read more
