Default What the Hell is this???!!!!

Saw this thing, cannot identify. It is approximately 4" long, and ugly as hell.

I considered shooting it.

And don't tell me it's harmless.

Looks like one but no horn on the anterior. If it were still living, it would have likely become a butterfly!

Harmless, except to the vegitation it consumes.

That was my thought, but perhaps consulting our resident exterminator (Shihan) would be in order here. I do hear that they are tasty, or at the very least full of protein. If you have a vacuum packer, save it for November. Otherwise, by mid September, it will be a pretty flutterby.

Hickory Horned Devil (Citheronia regalis) or the Regal Moth.

Here is the Grown up. Wow, tonight has been fun for me.

Benning, I marvel at your awesomeness. How did you teach it to roll over? Or did you manage to snap a picture while it was napping?

One word: fishbait.

I had my Spartan on me, I should have laid it next to it for scale, but I was too horrified.

I kid you not, 4" long. If it turns into a moth, it better come with 2 tiny Japanese ladies to sing to it, or look out Tokyo.
