It's a caterpillar of some sort. Here's a link to a lot more, but I couldn't find the one in the video: http://www.whatsthiscaterpillar.co.uk/plates.htm

You might find it in this bunch from South America: http://www.insectcompany.com/silkmoth/kirbywolfe.htm

My favorite bug is the millipede:

Those centipedes are a one bug creep show ------- amazing that an insect can wolf down a mouse, and the tarantula didnt stand a chance either, Me and an old girlfriend threw a massive back widow into a jar with a sun spider (they are related to the scorpion except they dont have a tail or front pinchers but they have two major "scoop arms" and two sets (four) massive front fangs that work independently of each other --- these two creatures know who the other is, there was no time wasted, the black widow started squirting web out of its arss and realing it on to the sun spider imediatly --- the sun spider had one side of its legs stuck together and was like a tank that lost a track so was spinning around in circles, However on the second rotation the widow got to close to the scoop arms and imediatly got pulled into the independently working front fangs (their black and i think they might be made of high grade carbide) it was so ugly, one set of fangs pulls in while the other set opens and reaches out for more meat, it force fed itself the widow in a matter of seconds --- Nobody survived the fight because me and my girl froze the sunspider so we could show our creepy friends later on, we would pull him out and he still had black widow flesh all over his face....
those were simple times fella's,,, very simple times...

i searched for "bolivia bug" on google and nothing came up except links to the video, seems like its a "puss moth" but this one is much more fuzzy than any others on the internet :D
