Real natural American Luna Moth (Actius
luna) wings are naturally fluorescent green which
makes the Glowing Luna moth magnet very realistic
indeed. We have made the wings of this unusual
and beautiful Lunar Moth glow in the dark just
for you to enjoy day and night! Collect
all three of our glow-in-the-dark butterfly and
moth magnets including the glowing Tropical Butterfly
and the Giant Firefly.
The close cousin to the Luna Moth
is an African species known as the Comet Moth
(Agerema mittrei), the Madagascan Moon Moth or
The Malagasy Lunar Moth from Madagascar is
huge, not only does it sport a hefty 8" wing
span but it wields a long 6" tail.
Like its American cousin it is born without a
mouth and has just two weeks to find a mate before
it literally starves to death. The American Luna
or Lunar Moth has a wingspan of 3 to 4 1/4 inches
(7.5-10.8 cm) in commonly in nature. Males and
females are similar in appearance, but the antennae
of the males is more feathery.
