Unbelievable Picasso-like Moth of the Genus Bertholdia. These are called Clicking Tiger Moths because they emit an audible clicking which is now believed to actually jam the echolocation of bats, causing them to miss them when hunting. http://www.crome.org/wp/2009/07/moths-ja... http://www.sonarjamming.com/jamming-disc...
