you are not wrong. butterflies are just a boring group of moths that people like 'cause they're charismatic & day-flying :\

some birds cough up indigestible bits from their food, like bones and fur, and this mass is called a pellet. sometimes in biology classes you get to break apart pellets from large owls and sort through all the bones & stuff.

That's cool. I went to a Wolf sanctuary earlier this year. They had a snow owl and bunch of other things as well. Unfortunately, one my camera batteries were dead, and two, I was completely nauseous the whole time. I spent most of the time trying to be that guy barfing at the wold sanctuary.

I kept it back, but wound up barfing in a parking lot, with a bunch of people warming up for a triathlon instead!

Yes, one could say he was living, "Hand to moth."

I'll see myself out, thank you.

i don't know that i've seen an emperor moth. a few imperial moths, some luna moths, a cecropia, and a surprising number of polyphemus moths.

what other big saturniids does the eastern us get??

Havent been there in a long time. But we have passes to Brookfield so we always go there. They had a butterfly thing going on there earlier this year.

A butterfly landed on my daughters thigh and she literally peed her pants in fright.

To be fair shes easily spooked.

The Netflix splash screen duh-dun! scares her too.

we've got giant house spiders here. big enough that you can't miss them, and still the fastest spider in the world (no, a sun spider is not a spider). read on wikipedia that they get sleepy and docile after they've eaten, so I fed one in my bath once and can confirm, they'll let you pick them up, though they get grumpy if you try petting them

not really leaf litter, though, now that I think about it. probably house centipedes are the only ones I can think of offhand that are useful+cool
