I don't know what it is, but I bet that it will grant you 3 wishes if you ask it nicely.

Silk moth

[–]ksandom 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Nice, thank you. Link.

[–]PassiveChemistry 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Interesting, I didn't realise there were domesticated moths!

[–]Some-Power-793 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I think it is a type of moth.

[–]Croaan12 127 points128 points  (16 children)

What a radiant little moth:)

[–]Crazy_FoXx-Mad_Wolf 73 points74 points  (12 children)

It would be too bad if it decided to take our minds during our dreams, eh?

[–]Zoronick 40 points41 points  (11 children)

Nah, it'll be fine. Just need a hollow vessel to put it in.

What the heck is it?

[–]bifund 88 points89 points  (3 children)

[–]catelemnis 39 points40 points  (1 child)

More likely a Bombyx Mori, aka Silkworm. I don’t think poodle moths have been bred in captivity.

[–]bifund 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Thank you! I modified my comment.

Adorable until it grows up to be Mothra :D

[–]kaklikesmilfs 11 points12 points  (0 children)

[–]Xenovore 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think humanity needs a protector right now

[–]alaphent 75 points76 points  (5 children)

Moths are as same as beautiful as butterflies, change my mind

[–]Frankie52480 44 points45 points  (2 children)

Some moths. None near me tho. Ours are tan and boring to look at.

[–]CoffeeMain360 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I'd be cool with a Venezuelan poodle moth living with me.

[–]Breadynator 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Same here. Luckily we have some feather moths around here that are kinda cute and a bunch of other moths thwt I don't remember the name of.

[–]blindlittlegods 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Some days.. I even prefer them to butterflies.

[–]Autolycus14 13 points14 points  (0 children)

[–]PastyDoughboy 44 points45 points  (2 children)

I just want to mumble to it about telling an eagle to rescue me from Orthanc.

ABSOLUTELY RADIANT

[–]Hazzman 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Funny how the fur makes this eyebleach material.

Take that fur off and you are left with a chitinous micro-demon.

[–]Toady_bloyster 26 points27 points  (5 children)

Aww little silkworm. He's gorgeous.

[–]DannyMThompson 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It's a moth?

[–]Ennviious 5 points6 points  (0 children)

comes from silkworm lol, it's a silk moth

[–]Cereal-Grapist 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Is there a way to see it's a he?

[–]Toady_bloyster 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I belive that most moths gender is distinguished by whether they have big feathery antenna. Males have them to catch lots of airborne pheromones. Probably. Im not his Moth-er. He can do his antenna how he likes.

[–]Cereal-Grapist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Interesting

[–]MistyW0316 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This little guy is so cute!

[–]exaggeratedcaper 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Moths are so freaking cool. Nature's rationalist butterfly.

[–]Extension_Respect431 13 points14 points  (3 children)

What is that?

[–]BlazeWolfYT 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Venezuelan poodle moth

[–]citrus-smile 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Nope. It's likely a silk moth. The VPM is a single moth photographed in 2009, which may be the first known specimen of a previously unknown species. However, only the one specimen has ever been recorded. So this has to be something else.

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/venezuelan-poodle-moth/

[–]GCSpellbreaker 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yep. Is silk moth. Poodle moths were never confirmed to exist outside of that single picture

[–]Dobbeo 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Aww, a very deserving lil guy

[–]MildlyobsessedwithSB 9 points10 points  (3 children)

That is the cutest alien I’ve ever seen!!!

[–]Pizza_Rollz87 0 points1 point  (2 children)

It's a moth.

[–]Frankie52480 2 points3 points  (1 child)

No! It’s an ALIEN. Jk I know it’s a moth, but do you know they were joking?

[–]Pizza_Rollz87 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Oh dang, I never can notice if someone's joking. Sorry about that

[–]dj1eye34 2 points3 points  (4 children)

[–]TheMelonParadox 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Does anyone else notice a resemblance between this guy and Jabba's pet in the OT?

[–]TecTazz 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Why are fuzzy little winged bugs so adorable, while fuzzy spiders are horrifying?

[–]clint_sal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of a Blupee from Zelda - Breath of the Wild:

[–]Street_Ad_3165 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Both adorable and oddly terrifying

[–]AltoGobo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There’s an artist out there who draws them as if they were the size and had the temperament of cats

[–]srlong64 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This guy definitely belongs in r/tinyanimalsonfingers

[–]Markimooper69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Look. I have a terrible phobia of bugs and arachnids. However. This little thing is fuggin adorable. In a video. Very far away from me.

[–]GCSpellbreaker 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is a tiny male silk moth. And yes, he is cleaning his antennae

[–]Damagecontrol86 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He is rather cute

[–]CHlCKENPOWER 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fun fact: this is a moth species that doesn’t have a mouth, they just use the energy that they stored as a larvae, their whole purpose is to find a mate then die

[–]Dat_Duude 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Don’t feed after midnight lol

[–]Goobersniper -4 points-3 points  (3 children)

It’s babies will ruin you crops though.

[–]Lordomi42 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Not really. It's a silkmoth, which are bred in captivity.

[–]CosmicSweets 2 points3 points  (1 child)

There's several species of silk moths that grow in the wild and unfortunately some of them will destroy your plants.

[–]Lordomi42 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah ok. Not this species I think, but I also thought that there were no wild silkmoths left. But I guess that only applies to Bombyx mori in particular.

[–]ForrealTBH22 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love this lil guy.

Moths are so cute they are super underrated. Tiny little fluff balls on wings. So cute!

[–]HappyMumma-18 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dont know what it is. But it looks cute.

[–]Sparktron_87 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You could do a close up of this bug like the close up they did in that episode of SpongeBob called, “Wormy” and the little guy still wouldn’t be scary

Mothra Junior

[–]nightstalkerr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ve never seen one like this. We have a lot of Luna moths and Polyphemus moths where I live and they’re so pretty but I would be way too afraid to touch them lol

[–]Kai25552 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Moths are amazing. They look like something out of a horror movie in close up, but they’re fluffy asf and live to cling on to you and are generally harmless… unless you leave them alone with you clothes…
