Hummingbird Hawkmoth

Happy hump day everyone! Today is #WeirdWildlifeWednesday and we would like you to meet our strange friend.

“Colour me in so I can carry fly!

Am I a moth or a bird? I am in fact a hummingbird hawkmoth, and I am a moth that looks like a hummingbird. I can fly up to 12 miles an hour with my very fast moving wings, and my wings can flap up to 70 times per second! I have some questions for you:

  1. How big is my wingspan?
  2. Where do I live?
  3. What do I like to eat?”
