Had to travel yesterday for my Uncles funeral, 960km in a day isn't bad. On the way we stopped at a park and walked the dogs around for a bit, and found these massive moths on the back of the toilet block.
They look big and scary enough to make up quite a story:
Here you see the Australian vampire moth, known to suck blood from other less dangerour Australian animals like Kangaroos, Koalas, Tasmanian Devils and more.
Luckily, the vampire moth season only lasts three days, and your quite safe if you stay inside at night for those three days.
Luckily, they are relatively dormant during the day, when these photos were taken, but my eldest daughter did get quiet a nip on her arm as they sensed blood.
It would sort of go with some of the other Australian wildlife if it were true ;-)
