Moths? Yes: a world of sphinxes, hawks, owls, tigers, and scary eyes, all waiting for you outside your door, or perhaps in your home. What will you find next, a wonderful Luna Moth, or a fearsome Io Moth? All stages of moths are welcome in this quest to find some of the most unique moths known to Earth, and maybe discover something new! No moth will ever be judged as drab in this mission!! Let's get rid of the stereotype that moths are gray, drab creatures!
