It's some sort of a Polyphemus Moth.

I agree with Maryann that it's an Polyphemus Moth. I like this idea "As with all Saturniidae moths, the hartii does all its eating in the larva stage. The adult moth has no mouth and cannot eat."

Like pig out when you are young and loose weigh the rest of you life...

thanks Bamaboydon and Maryann! I've no computer at the new house and it was hard to research moths with an iPhone!
