Have you ever seen a Regal Moth [1] up close?  One landed on my
building at work; a coworker asked me to verify if this thing was real
- see the link below, a moth with a wingspan of 9.5-15.5 cm!  Very few
of the pictures I could find online have any appreciable scale to
imagine so large a moth.  I described it as an orange tarantula with
wings.  The bottom picture on the Wikipedia page gives some scale of
the larvae in a human hand.  So if Spike is looking for a candidate
source for HPG, it won't take many of these fatties to make a filling
