      The Rosy Maple Moth (Dryocampa rubicunda) is a North American moth in the Saturniidae family. Males have a wingspan of 32–44 mm; females of 40–50 mm. They have reddish-to-pink legs and antennae, yellow bodies and hindwings, and pink forewings with a triangular yellow band across the middle. Males have bushier antennae than females. As the name implies, rosy maple moths mainly feed on Maples, particularly Red Maple, Silver Maple, and Sugar Maple. Sometimes these moths become pests on maple trees.

    I didn't know - About twelve million years ago the manul was one of the first two modern cats to evolve and it hasn’t changed since.

    This stunning creature is the Atlas Moth (Attacus atlas), the largest moth in the world in terms of wing surface area. Their wingspan can reach up to ONE FOOT in length! They're said to be named after either the Titan of Greek Mythology which holds up the Earth, or because of the map-like patterns on the wings.
