The completely bizarre Venezuelan poodle moth

The video: This little critter has been compared to everything from a cross between “a miniature gargoyle and a Furby” to a puzzling new “Pokemon character.” But whatever people think of its looks, the Venezuelan poodle moth is, apparently, the real deal. The photo, snapped in 2009 by zoologist Arthur Anker of Brazil’s Federal University of Ceará, has become something of an overnight sensation after Anker posted it onto his Flickr page. (Take a closer look below.) He first spotted the tiny insect with a 1-inch wingspan while walking through Canaimá National Park in Venezuela, and is now asking other zoologists to help identify its genus.
