Attacus atlas, the largest moth in the world!

Attacus atlas (Atlas Moth)

Giant moth (Attacus atlas) resting on net at our backyard Yay, I have finally unravelled the identify of this stunning beauty!

How wonderful to be able to name it after almost 4 years since it was last sighted at our backyard in January 24, 2004. And, to know that this was a handsome male moth and learn so much more about it. Sad though, to read that an adult Atlas moth can live only for about two weeks. They do not eat at all throughout their adult life, do not even have mouths and live off fat reserves built up when they were caterpillars. They quickly mate, lay eggs, and die shortly thereafter.
