The first thought anyone would get when asked about insects, is usually creepy and scary, haunting, nonsensical and what not.
If you don’t trust me, try this out.
Just say aloud that you are in love with some insect, people will catch hold of you and put you in some mental asylum, of course there are a few exceptions like butterflies but then what about cockroaches, mosquitoes, beetles, grasshoppers, and moths ?
Yuck, right? But hold your breaths, you will be falling in love with this particular moth, “The Rosy Maple Moth”, one amongst the most beautiful and attractive creatures existing in the world of insects.
These beautiful insects are found in North America in the Saturnidae family.
The scientific name of this beautiful creature is Dryocampa rubicabda, popularly known as rosy maple moth.
There is an interesting fact about adult rosy maple moths, and that is, once they grow old they stop eating forever.
I guess they are a source of inspiration for bakers of Battenburg cakes. These cakes are made by baking a yellow and a pink sponge cake separately, and then cutting and combining the pieces in a chequered pattern.
Anyone would love to have them around.
Rosy maple moths are the cutest insect that anyone would rarely want to shoo away.
There name comes from “maple trees”, as they feed on maples, particularly red maple, silver maple, and sugar maple.
Yes, these creatures love to fly alone and are often considered to be independent.
These pretty maples hardly live for 2 to 9 months.
