I can never remember what these new gen Pokémon are called.


If you ever see one of these moths, you will be impressed with its immense size, they have up to a 6 inch wingspan!  Yet, these giants are not dangerous and in fact, like all members of the giant silk moth family, their only purpose as adults is to reproduce.  They do not have functioning mouth parts or a digestive system, so they only live for up to two weeks.  The caterpillars start out tiny, but become huge over the course of the summer.   These moths have only one generation each year.
