sheila_winters Almost positive this beautiful creation from nature, is a Atlas moth! My first encounter too!!! - Moments like this, are some of the best moments of my life - Absolutely infatuated with these moths, never find them closer to home either. But this one, we found outside of the first rest stop we stopped at coming into California last night!!! At first glance -from a distance- it appeared to be a small bat ( Which would have been equally exciting ) but this find was the cherry on top!! I could probably die happy now that I've seen one in person. Traveling around with my baby @frostythedroman 8h

Known for its incredible size as well as its markings, the species has the largest wingspan of any moth in the world. It's wings resemble a head of a cobra.

siamipachuau Look what we just found. I was gonna save this for tomorrow morning but I'm just to frigging impatient. Meet - The giant Atlas Moth - Attacus Atlas. She is the biggest one iv ever seen. Atlas moths were often considered the largest moths in the world in terms of total wing surface area. Their name comes from either the #Titan of Greek mythology or from the striking pattern on their wings, which resembles a #map. #giantbutterfly #giantmoth ##attacusatlas #attacus #insect #insectgram #insectporn #insect_perfection #atlasmoth #No1UCCRoad Brats Aka- @xdindincx & @cheyannwyeth look what you all just missed. 1d

jacob_the_nature_guy The beautiful and weird atlas moth! Technically speaking this is the worlds biggest moth with a wingspan of 12 inches of course this is debatable with the Hercules moth of New Guinea. The atlas moths cocoons are so big and durable some people repurpose them as purses! These moths thrive in south Eastern Asia where their cocoons are also collected to be refined into silk products. They have a very short life span of two weeks because they do not eat because they have no mouth and live on their fat reserves to produce eggs and to survive. #zoo #zoology #conservation #preservation #bio #biology #love #jacobsark #follow #followme #animal #animals #asia #animalfacts #animalfact #protect #education #education #entomology #enviornment #eco #ecofriendly #wild #world #wildlife #moth #atlasmoth #bug #bugs #insect 1w
