Leopard Moths have a black-spotted pattern that contrasts with white wings. Under the wings, the body has iridescent blue and orange fur. As a caterpillar, called a wooly bear, they’re not as cuddly as they look, if threatened, they curl up exposing a visual warning of bright orange bands on their bodies, and black hairs that cause painful skin irritations. This adaptation has allowed these moths to flourish, they can be found throughout North America.
This original design is 3.5 inches long.
