With its bizarrely articulated long neck, this odd-looking creature almost looks like something out of the twisted imagination of Alien creator H.R. Giger.

But it is actually a real insect, native to Madagascar, and it is known as a giraffe weevil.

From its long legs to smaller body the unusual shaped critter is a surreal echo of its much larger namesake.

Start an argument with it, then tell it to wind its neck in.

Whoosh...
