Giant Atlas moth from the Philippines found in UK

Atlas Moth
A giant moth that normally lives in the Philippines has been found by a family in Lancashire.
The moth was found on the windowsill at a house in Ramsbottom.
The family took it to a butterfly sanctuary in Bolton along with thirty eggs it had laid.
The adult moth died because this species only lives for a week, but the eggs have hatched and caterpillars are making themselves at home.
They will form a chrysalis but won't emerge as fully formed moths for up to a year.
