You have most likely heard of a dog, cat and probably even an aardvark, but have you heard of the Venezuelan Poodle Moth?

A Venezuelan Poodle Moth is an insect that could easily pass as a flying bunny.

This magnificent moth was discovered in 2009 and is still baffling the minds of many scientists. We don’t know much about this creature.

The Venezuelan poodle moth’s first film was captured by Dr. Arthur Anker of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, He posted all of his 75 unique photographs of his time at the Gran Sabana National Park on Flicker. No one cared much at all about his unusual trip until sometime in August, 2012.

We still aren’t sure if this is a new species or not, and don’t really have a scientific name for it. Scientists are still searching, so if you have any ideas please post below.

You can imagine how difficult it would be to find the exact species because there are so many types of moths in the Arctiidae family. Believe it or not there is an estimated 11,000 species around the world!!!!!

    • Thank you! This animal was recommended to me by a friend, but usually I get my information from my books. I do sometimes look things up though.
