Indian Moon Moth



The Indian Moon Moth, also known as the Actias selene, is a species of moth that is native to South and Southeast Asia. It is a member of the Saturniidae family, which includes some of the largest and most striking moths in the world.

These moths are known for their large size, with a wingspan that can reach up to 7 inches. They are named for their distinctive markings, which include white and yellow bands on the wings and a crescent-shaped mark on the hind wings that resembles a moon. The adult moths are short-lived, with a lifespan of only around 10 days. During this time, they do not eat or drink, as they do not have functional mouthparts. Instead, they rely on the energy stored in their bodies from the larval stage to fuel their activities.
