just wonderd if anyone had seen a moth the size of a bat before?

i was washing up last night when i looked out this window in front of me and saw a big black and gray thing (moth)
i thought it was a bat at first because they are quite common near my house because of where i live, but when i looked closer it was a giant sized moth, scared me like hell
anyone seen a big moth like the size od a bat before?
it was freaky as hell

I saw one like in the link Asala provided, but possibly slightly bigger. It had attached itself to a Lamp Post. I thought it was a Bird at first, it was massive. I ran away!

A few years ago I saw something that looked like a bat, but more flesh coloured hanging from my bedroom light fixture. Could have been a bat sized moth I suppose.

You were going to kill a living creature? For what purpose? It wasn't hurting you...

it would be for purpose of showing people the shere size of the thing
to add to that, calm down dear its only a moth, even though a mighty moth at that
to conclued, i didnt actually kill it so does it matter?

You can take a picture of it without killing it though.

Power to the creatures! *raises fist in air*



Calm down dear, it's only a moth...


*kills you* Calm down, its only a human...

Get the point?

i have heard of the mothman, but im not very familiar with it
also the thing i saw was nothing like what the "mothman" has been described as
it wasnt the size of a human, more of a bat as i have said

I have never seen a moth as big as the one described above, it would have been cool if you got a picture of it.

The Moths in Southern Nevada are pretty big

i would say they are about 5 inches on average from top to bottom

they are freaky looking

I once saw a bat the size of a moth.

Do I win a prize?

I took this pic in West Virginia. Great eyespots on this guy. You can see that his
wingspan is about the width of a brick, about 8 inches in this case. I stood there for ten minutes until his front wings uncovered at least some of the eyespot.
