Framed Death's-Head Moth
Meet Acherontia Styx, otherwise known as the death's-head hawkmoth. It gets its name from the sinister-looking skull shape on its back. In many cultures it is thought to be an omen of death. It was famously featured in the Hannibal Lecter film The Silence of the Lambs, and appears on the poster. In the film, the serial killer Buffalo Bill uses the moths as calling cards, stuffing them into his victims' throats. It also makes a cute little squeaking noise.
