A fantastic educational resource from Safari, to demonstrate the life cycle of a Luna Moth. There are four detailed models that will fascinate young children.

Luna moth eggs are laid on tree leaves, including the sweetgum, where the caterpillars will have plenty to eat and little competition. After molting several times, the caterpillar creates a cocoon, from which the adult Luna moth emerges, ready to dry its wings and flutter into the night.

Parents and teachers now have a way to teach about the wonders of life in an engaging way, with manipulatives that children can touch and play with.

Characteristics: One of the most beautiful and easily recognized moths, the tails at the bottoms of its wings allows the Luna moth to confuse bats and escape predators.
Colour: The Luna moth caterpillar shows off its camouflage, confusing predators by blending with its leafy home.
