    The Venezuelan Poodle Moth is almost unreal looking and believe it or not, a real insect, not a hoax. The species was only recently identified (discovered in 2009 by Dr. Arthur Anker of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, in the Gran Sabana region of Venezuela) and there are actually quite a few rather closely related moth species (Muslin Moth) that look just as interesting and strange.

Most moth species are very small and are active only at night, so we don’t often get to examine them up close. But in our current photo exhibition Winged Tapestries: Moths at Large, you can pore over the insects in glorious detail. Banded tussock moth © Jim des Rivières
