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.
