    WOW! First time I ever saw one of those was when I was a little kid. It scared me to death . It was a monster sized bug and I'd never a moth that size before and wasn't sure what it was lol. Got over my fear quick enough when I found out it was a moth and decided it was "really neat". I haven't seen one in a long time though.

    Luna Moths, Polyphemus Moths, Cecropia Moths and the Atlas Moths are my all time favorites...just because of the size! i found a Polyphemus caterpillar once... HUGE things! i had it in a terrarium outside with a mesh cover... and after a LONG time(cant recall the exact time) it opened up from its cocoon. the moth was huge!

    Holy crap! Funny you posted that, I saw one myself here in N.Y. this past week!!! No kidding! If I had a camera I would have took a few photos. Not sure if it was alive or not but it's the same exact creature!

    Now I'm tempted to learn how to breed them. I don't know if it's practical, possible, or where I'd even get them to start with, but if they're becoming rare it seems like a worthwhile experiment.
