The moth that looks like a poodle
« on: August 22, 2012, 03:58:06 AM »
Is it a bird? Is it a dog? No... it's a moth that looks like a POODLE!

By Daily Mail Reporter
22 August 2012


It may look like it's just dropped in from Middle-Earth but this fluffy creature is actually a moth.

With its bulging eyes and cotton wool-like coat the moth almost doesn't seem real.

When taxonomist Dr Arthur Anker posted his bizarre picture on Flickr other users were at first skeptical about whether the photograph was a fake.


Is it a bird? Is it a dog? No... it's a moth that looks like a poodle

'Looks like something out of a Harry Potter movie?' wrote one, while another posted: 'It's freaking adorable I want one!!!'

The multi-legged insect is casually tagged a 'Poodle Moth' and there is not mention of a more scientific name.

But believe it or not the strange being really is a true native of Venezuela, where the scientist caught it on camera.

MYSTERY OF THE VENEZUELAN POODLE MOTH - HAVE YOU SEEN THIS INSECT??

by Dr. Karl Shuker
ShukerNature - http://www.karlshuker.blogspot.com



A furry mystery – the 'Venezuelan poodle moth' (© Dr Arthur Anker, aka artour_a/Flickr)

As cryptozoology enthusiasts will readily testify, just a few weeks ago the internet was awash with dazzling but highly deceptive photographs of black lions. Now, the latest animal photo to beguile and bewilder everyone online is this one.

On 21 August 2012, Facebook friend David Laslett drew my attention to the eyecatching and exceedingly interesting photograph opening this present ShukerNature blog post. He explained that the photo had lately appeared all over the internet, and was labelled as 'the Venezuelan poodle moth'. Yet in spite of this insect's memorable name and very unusual appearance, and although he had spent a considerable time online attempting to identify it, David had not been able to find out anything whatsoever concerning it, not even its scientific name – only ever more copies of this same photograph and the same name applied to its furry-limbed, white-winged subject.

Greatly intrigued, David asked me if I knew this moth's species and whether I could trace any information regarding it. And so, without further ado, and as Sherlock Holmes might well have said in such a situation, the game was afoot!

I love a challenge!!

It was a species that I'd never seen before, so I spent quite a time researching its photograph, its name, and its supposed provenance (Venezuela) online, but, just as David had reported, nothing! The photo had appeared on countless websites recently, but with no additional details. Consequently, as someone who has exposed various hoax wildlife photographs in the past, such as those purportedly depicting genuine black lions*  and multi-headed cobras**, I naturally began to wonder whether the poodle moth was the Photoshopped creation of a poodle-faker!
