Hundreds of Caterpillars Walking in a Line


(Video Link)

'Cause we got a little ol' convoy 
Rockin' through the night. 
Yeah, we got a little ol' convoy, 
Ain't she a beautiful sight? 
Come on and join our convoy 
Ain't nothin' gonna get in our way.

I read that it was because they don't have bones, they're moved by the rippling motion they make with their bodies. So, to save energy as they move from one food source to another, they make these long inertia trains to keep the ripple moving all the way through the line with minimal effort.

Of course, I read that on the internet, so it could be completely false.
