Patriotic giant moth lands on US flag

A cool video has emerged from the Philippines of a giant Atlas moth which landed inside a home on the flag of the United States.

In the video, which was filmed on Sunday, the impressive moth sits motionless on the Stars and Stripes as the homeowner marvels at its size.

The Atlas moth is one of the biggest in the world.

The tips of its wings are believed to be adapted to look like the head of a cobra to ward off predators.
