Hickory Horned Devil: The regal moth, scientifically known as Citheronia regalis, is indigenous to the deciduous forest of the eastern United States and one of the largest moths in the area. As caterpillars age, they molt four times with each instar being different. On the fifth and final instar, caterpillars adopt a bright green color, with huge, black-tipped red horns, earning them their common name hickory horned devils. They feed heavily on their host plant for about 40 days and can grow up to 6 in (15 cm) long. Although prickly in appearance, they do not sting, and the larva is harmless and is actually easy to handle. Sources: Bob Warrick and University of Florida #science #biology #animals #nature #photo

Giant Squid: Giant squid can grow to a extraordinary size due to deep-sea gigantism, which is the tendency of invertebrates and other deep dwelling species to be larger than their shallow water counterparts. Estimates put the maximum size of a giant squid at 43 ft (13 m) for females and 33 ft (10 m) for males from the posterior fins to the tip of the two long tentacles. The mantle is approximately 6 to 7 ft (2 m) long, and the length of the squid excluding its tentacles, while including head and arms, rarely exceeds 16 ft (5 m). Giant squid have eyes measuring a foot (30 cm) in diameter, which is the largest in the animal kingdom. These large eyes help absorb more light to locate bio-luminescent prey and spot predators at a distance.
