Interesting Facts about Argema Mittrei:
Also known as the comet moth or moon moth from Madagascar, Argema mittrei are also silk moths and are one of the largest species in the world.
Their cocoons have several naturally made holes through the outside layer, which serve to drain excess water during the rainy season. This helps keep the pupa hydrated and prevents them from drowning before they hatch.
