A family from Australia discovered a moth the size of a bird

(ORDO NEWS) — A family living in Australia, walking through the countryside of Camp Mountain (northeast Brisbane), suddenly noticed something huge and similar to a moth. The insect protruded more than a man’s fist.

The spread wings reached a length of 25 cm, and the body length was 15 cm. The body had a standard gray color with a dark spot on the breast.

It was found that the scientific name of the species is E. cinereus. The carpenter moth is found on trunks and branches in Queensland and Brisbane, where it sits with folded wings. As a rule, insects appear in the summer. After mating, they die immediately.

It is not every day that you can contemplate the usual creatures of this size, so the photographs caused an unprecedented excitement. The pictures were posted on a Facebook group called Amateur Entomology Australia.
