Life cycle

Life cycle

  • The Lunar moth is a caterpillar that changes its skin five times before it turns as a caterpillar it eats leaves.

  • It goes into the cocoon

  • It changes into a adult as it emerges from the cocoon. Now the lunar moth has no moth and does not eat.

  • The Lunar moth grows about three to four inches long.
