Atlas Moth is the largest moth species (wing span of 30cm) in the world. Most commonly found in Southeast Asia, the moth is so named because its wing patterns are said to resemble maps. The moth's wing tips also appear to resemble a snake's head, which may be a tactic to scare off predators. Despite its grandeur, it will only live about a week. by Amy Oliver, dailymail.co.uk. #Atlas_Moth
