Winged Wednesday

This pretty Cecropia Moth visited my mom at work today. 
The interesting thing about this moth, other than being HUGE,
is that is doesn't have a mouth!
It eats while it's a caterpillar then survives
on it's stored fat for the rest of it's life.
My mom says I could survive on my fat for quite awhile...
She's not very nice.

What a pawsome moth. It's very interesting looking, but I kinda feel sorry for it cause it doesn't get to eat. Hmmm.
BTW....you are not fat. If you're fat, then I am a blimp.
love,

That moth is super pretty. But I feel kind of sad that it has such a short life and does not get to enjoy any foodables.

Slobbers,

Just so you know -- your moth isn't a Cecropia. It's a Tulip-tree Silkmoth. Google images of the two; you'll see they're distinctly different.
