She caught a Luna moth and it is interesting because these moths emerge from the cocoon and only live for one week and only to mate. I hope it mated before she killed it.
Quote:According to National Geographic Kids, "The insect doesn't have a mouth or a digestive system. That's because it only lives for about a week after leaving the cocoon, and it doesn't ever eat." The luna moth spends about a month in caterpillar form, 3 weeks in a cocoon and only 1 week with its eye-catching green wings. As adults, they live solely to mate.
