One week... Really?!

That's what Actias luna has to live and pass on it's existence...  One week!  Even though they are apparently "common", this moth is rarely seen because of its short existence so I was super excited to find one sitting right here at Sport Horse!  With an adult wing span of typically 4.5 inches making it on of the largest moths in Northern America, it lives solely to reproduce, having no mouth to eat.  What a diverse world we live in?!
