Atlas Moth Picture

The Attacus atlas or atlas moth are considered the largest Lepidopterans in the world. Their wingspans reaching over 10 inches long, or feet we should say. A high percentage of females being larger than males. The word Atlas refers to the map like patterns on their wings or to the term Titan of Greek Mythology. Atlas moths are often brown in color with "eye" like patterns on both ends of their wings (these feature is often used to scare away predators)

Just a lil' overview of them, gonna be drawing different species of moths. I guess you can say its a lil' side project I'm working on. Aren't they interesting~? <:
