moth ID
Hi again. Now you’ve really got my attention! Here is a moth I found in Austin. It was about the size of a quarter and got very uppity with us when we were trying to take its picture…it started oozing a green liquid from the dots on its back. Ive got a pic of that too…but not a very good one. The second pic is of an imperial moth (Im assuming), just thought you might enjoy it.

Hi Jeffery,
This is a Giant Leopard Moth, Ecpantheria scribonia. It is one of the Tiger Moths in the Family Arctiidae.
