Luna Moths

To learn about raising your own Luna Moths check out the three-part series: Eggs, Caterpillars, and Cocoons. For more about raising caterpillars in general, see Making a Caterpillar Home and Food and Water.

Shamrock fifth graders started raising luna moths in 2016. They’re such beautiful creatures. We feed the caterpillars sweetgum leaves and watch them spin their cocoons.
