Boyd's Forest Dragon, Hypsilurus boydii, lives in our forests. This one comes around from time to time and sleeps in the same spot on our Mangosteen tree. He is there most rainy nights. Where he spends the dry nights is his business! He often "assists" in the moth collecting in the morning.
The Hercules Moth, Coscinocera hercules, comes around mostly on cool nights. It has been at least 6 months since one has showed up at our lights. This one measured 22 cm across. They can get larger, especially the females. This is a male as can be told by examining the antennae and because is has "long tails". Females have much less elaborate antennae and short, more blunt tails.
