Monday’s post was all about the butterflies at Butterfly Wonderland, but there were some moths, too.
The atlas moth, Attacus atlas, is known for having the largest wing area of any insect. Although commonly seen in butterfly houses, this moth is from Asia.
When I first spotted this moth I thought for an instant it was an odd-looking luna moth. Instead it is Argema mimosae, the African moon moth. It is from eastern and southern Africa.
It is so amazing to be able to see moths and butterflies from around the world in one place. Are you ready for a trip to a butterfly exhibit of your own? The Butterfly Website has a list of butterfly exhibits worldwide.
Where is your favorite butterfly exhibit?
