Attacus atlas is a large saturniid moth found in the tropical and subtropical forests of Southeast Asia, and is common across the Malay archipelago, Thailand to Indonesia.

The wingspan of a female Atlas Moth can reach up to 12 inches with a surface area of 62 square inches. This is one big bug! Many see the word “Atlas” as a reference to the bold and distinct lines that form the map-like pattern found on its wings, the different colors representing different geological formations.

We know what you’re thinking, you would like to torch every one of those pesky bugs buzzing around your porch light and banging into your windows. But forget those white-winged summertime pests that come to mind. An Atlas Moth would eat them for breakfast if it had a mouth. You don’t have to worry about the Atlas Moth munching on the clothes in your closet. Despite their large size, they have no mouths and don’t eat once emerging from their cocoons, relying on fat storage from their immature stages of life.

After spending about a month in their cocoons, Atlas Moths emerge as the beautiful creatures. It beats any butterfly with its beauty and grandeur, and it’s time to show this insect the respect it deserves. Unfortunately, this state is short lived as the adult moths typically die within a week or two of spreading their wings.
