Silk moth


The moth that comes from a silkworm cannot eat ( it has no mouth ) and it cannot fly. It cannot fly because silkworms are kept in places like China or Japan for the silk of their cocoons and so people made them somehow not be able to have large wings so they cannot fly.


Mulberry trees... Everywhere! Many are kept in Asia for the silk, though.
