the emperor moth.
this came up in one of my lectures today about cell signalling. these humdingers can detect female pheremones up to 11km away.
i’m amazed i remember that really, after the lecturer put this picture on a gigantic lecture screen.
scary looking fuck.
no doubt that this is gonna haunt my dreams tonight.
oh and yeah, it’s about the size of your hand. you can all have nightmares too now.
