5 Wonderful & Weird Moths
The Luna moth has beautiful, shimmering green wings with “tails”. This type of moth does not have a mouth and its sole purpose is mating!
The Hummingbird Hawkmoth looks very much like a Hummingbird, hence the name. It hums when it flies, and hovers and it feeds on flowers just like one too.
White Plume Moth
This moth is completely white, and its wings look like incredible fine feathers. This moth holds its wings open in a t-shape when perched, unlike most other moths that fold their wings.
When this moth is in danger, it opens its wings to reveal an eyespot pattern. This is to deter any predators they may meet.
Death’s Head Hawkmoth
These moths have a unique skull-like pattern on their backs, and when they are put in danger, they let out a loud squeak.
There are over 160,000 species of moths in the world, so it would be nearly impossible to list all of them. Leave us a comment of any moths you think are particularly cool, strange or beautiful!
