One day last summer as I went to get in my car

At the time I didn't think to lay
something beside it to show and
compare it's massive size.
Yeah that's it .. that's my story.
That sounds so much better than
I was scared to death it would fly up at
me an attack !!
It's wing span was about 7 inches wide
and it's huge furry head was about the size of a penny.
It's called a
Eacles Imperialis Moth
I only saw "him" a couple of times and
"he" was always near my car.

A few months later Jeff and I were outside
and found this ..
Eacles Imperialis Moth Larva
heading down a tree.
Jeff the smart one .. pulls out
one of his business cards to show
a size comparison.
If you click on the picture you can
see the enlarged version..
He's a lil furry and has HORNS...
I was amazed at his size and even
though Jeff knew I wasn't coming within
jumping distance of it .. he did warn
me not to touch it ..
lol Yeah Right.. Me touch it ! hahaha!


  1. Wow -so huge. My daughter is fascinated by bugs and mini-beasts - she did not inherit this from me!

  2. Nature is so amzing and beautiful-fun post!

  3. Wow - that's an ugly worm! Yikes! I wouldn't touch it either.

  4. I'd be running to the nearest phone for an exterminator. [kidding!] That is one huge creature. You don't happen to live here in Texas do you? They say everything's bigger in Texas y'know.

    My show n tell is finally posted. It's not much this week, but it's something. LOL

  5. I have seen one of those moths once. Creepy. I am not a fan but it is interesting!

  6. Oh My! What a huge moth!



  7. Oh my goodness! I would have ran back to the house. You and hubby are very brave. He looks like something out of a horror movie. Yikes!
