A moth that looks like a poodle! A new insect hybrid creature found in
Venezuela, the poodle moth species is causing an internet buzz around
While exploring marine biology and the regional wildlife
of Venezuela, Dr Arthur Anker discovered this adorable looking species
of moth which is now being called the poodle moth as its popularity is
spreading like wildfire around the internet.
These images were
uploaded to Arthur's flickr page which is linked in the description

while others believe that it is real as Dr Anker's flickr page is full
of incredible close ups of insects and underwater wildlife that tend to
show some pretty unique views that make even some common animals looks
