The largest moths in the world are at the High Desert Museum right now. Museum spokesperson Dana Whitelaw says they just got a shipment of 10 Atlas Moths. They are currently in their 5 to six inch long cocoon that looks like a dried leaf; when they start emerging, they get really big! "They're about 7-8 inches in their wingspan.  And they'll be in the exhibit for another 2-3 weeks is about how long we'll be able to keep them in the exhibit. And we had some several weeks ago and they're a real highlight for adults and kids alike to see the largest moth in the world." The moths are part of a popular butterfly exhibit. The Museum is located south of Bend.
