Creatonotos Gangis - One Really Weird Insect
Everyone knows that our great green and blue planet is rammed full of weird critters. However, it is still impressive the extent of strangeness that mother nature throws at us. It is Creatonotos gangis moth. Its name forewarns you that it’s going to be obscure, and it doesn’t disappoint. Creatonotos is an unassuming moth that lives in South-east Asia (China, India, Japan, Thailand) and northern Australia. These diminutive moths are famous for making a nuisance of themselves in pomegranate trees. His white, black, red and yellow hues make him an attractive member of the moth family, but it’s not his colouring that initially draws the eye.
