This is the biggest moth you will ever see and it was watching the Astros-White Sox game

This may be not only the weirdest thing you will see today, but perhaps the creepiest.

Before the White Sox 3-2 victory over the Astros on Thursday night, during the bottom of the ninth, the teams had a spectator glued to the net watching the game. This wasn't a casual fan or a young kid trying to take it all in. This was an … insect?

As you can hear in the video above, the broadcasters were also unsure exactly what this was. They jokingly said it was a mix between a moth and a squirrel. While it seems comedic, by the looks of it, that doesn't seem so farfetched.


Well, whatever this was, it was joined by a praying mantis which seemed smaller than what we may be used to on any nature show.

Let's hope this isn't the Sox new mascot, because just like the broadcasters mentioned, we would like to never see this thing again.
