The discovery was made in the small town of Mount Cotton of 6 thousand people. population. During the construction of the new school building, a giant butterfly was found with a wingspan of 25 cm and a weight of 30 grams. Animal Protection Service personnel were summoned quickly. An unusual butterfly was photographed, then it was taken from the construction site and released into a nearby forest.
– Our employees were not surprised by this finding, because due to the fact that the school is very close to wild distances, the construction site is visited by koalas, ducks, snakes, tree frogs and even opossums and turtles. But we haven’t seen such a moth yet – the school principal said in an interview with ABC Radio Brisbane.
Although the giant moth is unusual to the world, there are many animals in Australia that Australians are accustomed to, and this can cause horror elsewhere.
The schoolchildren did not see the night butterfly with their own eyes, but are excited about the discovery, writing several stories about the invasion of giant insects.
Tree moths are among the largest insects of this species in the world. Their weight barely makes them rise from the air. It is a very rare species, it is found naturally only in Australia and New Zealand.
