Thanks George, wingspan is around 8 inches. It's what you might call a "Big Mother"

Thanks Conrad.

To me the leading edge of the wings look like branches with a couple of snake heads peering down and in wait of a tender morsel.

Jim, Thanks. I agree that it is cool; however, it wasn't very cool in the tiny greenhouse-like display room in the Tucson Botanical Garden exhibition. So , yes it was captive.
