Big Butterfly (Attacus atlas)













Photographer:Hakeem

Attacus atlas this moth is  found in the tropical and subtropical forests of Southeast Asia. Their bodies are hairy and disproportionately small compared to their wings. Male Atlas moths are distinguished from females by their smaller size, more tapered wings, and larger, bushier antennae.Neither sex possess fully formed mouthparts and therefore do not feed; throughout their 1–2-week adult life they survive entirely on larval fat reserves that they build up while they are caterpillars. Isn't it amazing?
