    Man I love them but they're more needy than dogs I swear, always making noise when flying, they poop a lot, one of them is laying eggs everywhere(even on the pupae), Stubborn, etc. They're lucky I think they're cute, Despite my complaining and me telling people that I'll never raise moth children again I bet you that I'm gonna get more cause I think they're great, they're much fluffier than butterflies and wayyy more calmer, One of my moths escaped and I got it back into the tank within seconds cause it willingly landed on my hand. Also unlike butterflies, Moths are meme worthy, I'll probably get one of the larger species like the Black Witch, don't know where I'll get it but I have ways of finding out.

    Tobacco hawk/Carolina sphinx moths(manduca sexta) was originally gonna be fed to my t as hornworms but they went into pupation before they can be fed and I think they're cute so I can't feed them to her.
