Recently, photographer Rada SC was on a hike with his father in the hills near Alamos, in northern Mexico, when they spotted something unusual.
There, curled in a nook on a rocky slope, was what appeared to be a furry black creature grabbing a nap.
“We thought it was a sleeping animal of some kind,” Rada SC explained to The Dodo. “I told my father that we should gently touch the ‘ball of hair’ to see if we could identify what it was.”
But, boy, were they in for a surprise. It wasn’t just one animal — it was actually thousands. Here’s the video of that shocking discovery.
