Welcome to Project Noah. Nice spotting from this Goat Moth and cute dog snout! Please, change your names: In the Common name field it should be: "Goat Moth Caterpillar" and in the scientific field it should be: "Cossus cossus". You can change this by editing your spotting. Thanks!

Oh - and just saw this was in Latvia. My mother's grandparents were from Vilnus. I did not know it got warm there - with the stories I've heard, I thought it was always snowy there. My great grandmother used to ride a troika to town when she lived in Vilnus (or Vilna?) in the 1880s, I believe.

I love the photo with the dog sniffing it. Great for scale and cute. :)
