I found this gorgeous Polyphemus moth (Antheraea polyphemus) in the parking deck when I was leaving campus around 4:30 and decided to take it home. I wasn’t sure if it was male or female so I kept it in an empty exo-terra terrarium just in case it was a female with eggs (it wasn’t, but I tried). The cats were so enthralled by the giant moth, I had to cover the container and put it in a corner.

This is the first thing I see in the morning when I wake up. The grumpy face of a starving Keira.

Catalpa caterpillars are the escape artists of the sphingid family. My lab mate’s caterpillars manage to escape from any container she keeps them in. Found this guy in the next room over trying to find something to eat lol

So sometimes I walk around the science building with a cockroach in my pocket. No biggie, right?

I am never satisfied with my tumblr theme, I just can’t help changing it. But I think I like this one. I may tweak the colors a bit, but I like it.
