Insectology: The Majestic Moth



Since a long time ago, I have a crush (not like killing them, but really love them) on insects. Despite their short lifespan, they are one of the strongest species in the world - super strong reproductive system which produces thousand of eggs; unique body parts - extra limbs; captivating colour like the moth above.

My university located in the center of a palm oil plantation. I believe this is one of the moth that can be found here? I need an expert here~ Because, this rare beauty is really out of sight in where I come from - Ipoh. Therefore, my fascinations towards this creature was utterly strong. Looking at its wings, the colourful pattern really attracted me (^^)

Having a closer look, you might even feel eerie (as for me, I am still fascinated) because it has fur like dogs @@ ~ No kidding!!!! The most interesting part is the leaf-like antenna. Omg !!!!! Yes, totally amazing how mother nature really is (^^)

Tata for now! Hope you enjoy this Majestic Moth Beauty. You can always look for my other insectology posts under the label insectology....

Very hard to find Moth like this in their natural habitat huh? I usually see them at the butterfly farms only.
