The first emerges! :D

While I was away at work, one of the Luna Moths emerged from her cocoon. šŸ˜€ I missed the first of three – but that’s okay. I am quite happy overall. The other two Luna Moths are still developing . . . and I feel, one simply needs to have patience. šŸ™‚

This Luna Moth, is female. You can tell by the antennas. Males have more bushy hairs upon their antennas in comparison to the females. ā¤

Update: 4/28/17′

Yesterday, the first of three passed away. I’ve placed her inside of a glass container for ‘sentimental-learning’ preference for the future. She was very gentle, highly-energetic and sweet. ā¤ šŸ™‚

Her fellow two roommates are slowly but surely developing in different stages inside of their cocoons. I would say, in roughly a week from now, the second Luna Moth should emerge. šŸ™‚ ā¤ The third, is a bit behind his brother in his last moments of pupa/adult development. šŸ™‚
