This framed Atlas moth has the largest wing surface area of any moth and has a wingspan that can reach up to 12 inches. The short lived adults have no feeding apparatus and their only goal is to breed. These well camouflaged moths live in the forests of Southeast Asia and have wingtips that resemble a snake’s head – for added protection. It is called an Atlas moth because its wing patterns resemble a map. The Atlas moth is in the silk moth family but does not produce commercial silk.
