Mothra

Earlier in the week I received a link to a news story on post-Fukushima insect mutations along with a one-word salutation: “MOTHRA!”  Much to my horror, from the article it appears that the sender’s exclamation was warranted.  Mothra is real and, as expected, lives in Japan.

Behold, the evidence.  First, I present to you a still from the 1964 film classic Mothra vs. Godzilla (which I always thought was sort of an unfair fight, but now that I know that Mothra is real, I may have to reevaluate):

Mothra with the low-loop fly-by of Godzilla.

Now I present to you the photo in the news story, which the reporter refers to as a “mutated butterly”:

I can only assume the scale is the same as the first Mothra photo.

It’s uncanny and totally creepy and has me very concerned about any nuclear power plants ever going in the jungle or swamp ever.   I prefer watching King Kong and Godzilla on my television screen only, thankyouverymuch.
