    It looks like a swarm of baby slugs that are trying to look like an adult slug as some sort of survival technique.

    Woomanfoo - erm why do you think they aren`t insects? Look like insect larvae to me, though would need a closer view to get an idea of family, let alone genera or species.

    Still I`d punt a guess at something like an Army Worm, a moth caterpillar that swarms like this, i.e. an insect.

    Some sort of caterpillar, we get "Forest Tent" caterpillars up here that travel in massive groups (not a cool `snake` like this vid) when they`re at plague levels.

    We get fuzzy caterpillars that do the same thing in our garden. You guide the front of the swarm around so it meets the rear of the swarm and they all just move in a circle, going round and round and round and round.....

    Big spider on the window at work, played "Amnesia" for five hours straight, now this. So my options at this point are:
    1. Go to bed and have bug-infested nighmares till five in the morning.
    2. Make a pot of coffee, get a bottle of Kalua, and stay up all night with ten-thousand kitten videos on YouTube.

    They are caterpillars. There are about 2 million of them down in Zion National Park. That swarming is an oddity. Usually they just crawl anywhere on the paths and get stepped on in the millions.
