In the May 2022 Animal of the Month section, we mistakenly labelled an Oleander Hawk Moth caterpillar as a Luna Moth caterpillar. Although they are both green, you can tell an Oleander Hawk Moth caterpillar by its striking blue eyespots.
We’re so lucky at Chickadee because we get to meet readers who do amazing things! Check out Nathan and Timothy — their family raises several species of giant silk moths, including Luna Moths! So cool, right? Thanks for sharing, Timothy and Nathan!
Have you ever seen a Luna Moth in person? Let us know in the comments!
