Observation Notes: 
You can see by my full adult sized hand this moth is large. Sadly, though I am sure it can't be the same one, we saw one like it last night, though with it's wings in really bad shape. Same size and all though. It was still alive when I moved it our of our animals reach but could not find it this morning.
