What a beautiful moth... they don't look like that around here!

Am I insane or do the 2 top outer points of the wings look like snake heads?

Hi Sharon. It is a beautiful moth indeed and amazingly large. Yes, the 2 top outer points of the wings do look like snake heads. We reckon it could be a defensive mechanism to fool predators.
