I don't know what kind of moth this is, or even if it is a moth. (I researched this and it is a Rustic Sphinx Moth) This picture does no justice to the size of it. I should have put something next to it to show the size, but I am not over exaggerating (too much) when I say it was the size of a pack of cigarettes. I was scared to get too close because I didn't want it to bite my hand off.
