Mutant!: Moth With Terrifying Looking Pheromone-Emitting Tentacles

October 27, 2017


This is a short video of a male specimen of Creatonotos gangis moth posted by Facebook user Gandik from Indonesia. *verifies Indonesia is super far away from my apartment* Oh thank God. In the video, the moth presents its pheromone-emmiting coremata, which may remind you of terrifying looking alien penises if you've ever been unfortunate enough to see some of those before. "Have you, GW?" I'll be honest: I thought I wanted to be abducted, and I was wrong. Apparently actually capturing a Creatonotos gangis's coremata on video is super rare, presumably because everyone else who's ever had the opportunity turned and ran like any normal person would.

Keep going for the video while I speculate whether or not this is actually Mothra.

Thanks to hairless, who agrees moths have weird ways of attracting the ladies. Me? I'd fly through a candle flame and attract the with my bitchin' flaming wings.

    "a wingspan of 40 millimetres (1.6 in)" Yeah quite the scary giant. You people are idiots.

    I feel like if I saw that thing in my house I'd just keep hearing Arnie's voice inside my head repeating 'get your ass to Mars'.

    These are the kinds of things you just grab a vacuum for.

    The second that thing started flexing its ass at me, itd ben burned and sucked into a bag.

    Just no. Nope.
    So gross. Take off and nuke it from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

    I don't wanna jinx us here, but thank goodness that afterooster bitch is gone.
