What an egg-cellent interview.

Earlier this week, Fox 5 reporter Bob Barnard did a live report from the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History where he hung out with an African Moon Moth. Over the course of the interview, the moth flirtatiously crept up to his ear. Barnard then joked that the moth bit him, causing insect zoo manager Dan Babbitt to tell Barnard, "They actually don't have any mouth parts." That should have been Barnard's warning that when the moth was "biting" him, it was actually laying eggs on him like in some sci-fi B-movie.

Photos are below. Don't look at 'em if you don't like seeing bug eggs on human ears (a very specific and very valid phobia).
