Picture – Big Atlas Moth

Biggest Moth Wings

This is an Atlas Moth. This big insect is considered to be the largest moth in the world. This type of moth is not as common as it used to be here in my neighborhood. There used to be a bunch of them on a “Santol” tree near the house. It’s locally known as “Mariposa” which is the spanish term for butterfly, which it is not.
