This is a submission for the Anatomically Correct Series
Residing in west virginia, Mothman is depicted as:
- Being 7 feet tall
- Being nocturnal
- Having red eyes (or at least appearing to)
- Having wings
- Being white in coloration
- Having no obvious neck
Given these characteristics, what species could Mothman have evolved from, and what evolutionary pressures would lead to such a being?
NOTE: Magic does not exist in my story.
