Look at this sucker!
Those antenna are pretty cool too!
mothra mothra mothra!
Whatever you're feeding the bugs in your part of the world, stop before we have a 50s horror movie on our hands!
I used to see those around our Minnesota lake cabin when I was a kid. I'd keep them as pets. Pretty cool, they're like the size of small birds.
A giant moth is ok, as long as it's not a Mothman…
Hard to tell how big it really is without something for reference in the pic. How big is that thing? Approximately.
oy, the mothman prophecies creeped me out.
Especially since it's based on a "true story"…
It was about the size of the palm of my hand. In the last picture its sitting on the door frame which is about 3 inches wide.
My wife would freak out. She hates little moths. I will show her the picture when I get home.
That's exactly what I said after seeing these pics. Mothra's distant relative, perhaps? j/k Great find, man!
Yeah, that's kind of creepy.
I was walking by the door at work and this guy was just sittin' there soaking up the sun. I had to grab a few picture of him since I could get so close through the glass. He's a pretty good sized furry critter and the camera really caught a lot of the details.
The antenna are very similar to feathers - they have the whole hook-and-barb thing going.
Crazy how two completely different creatures on opposite ends of the animal kingdom can develop similar structures.
The meatiness of the legs also is kinda creepy.
Why does he need to be so beefy?
I saw one of those last night in the laundry room. Surprised me and freaked me out by flying right at me.
So he can grab mice and frogs and carry them back to his lair.
If you think the moth is creepy, you should see the caterpillar those come from.
I used to find them all the time on our apple trees as a kid, we would put them in a big jar and watch it make a cocoon and eventally come out. Neat stuff.
Big green bastards with a huge spike on their tail end? Hotdog sized?
All those cigarette butts. So untidy!
Neat moth. There's many a large breed around here, some that could probably rival your own "Mothra," even in the looks department. Especially the ones with green wings that taper off to very thin tail-things.
