Caption: Atlas moth caterpillar (Attacus atlas) on a leaf. Atlas moths are among the largest species of moths and butterflies (Saturniids) and are found in the forests of Southeast Asia. Female atlas moths lay a number of spherical eggs 2.5 millimetres in diameter on the undersides of leaves. Caterpillars hatch after about two weeks and pupate after reaching a length of about 115 millimetres (4.5 inches). The adult moths emerge after about four weeks inside a cocoon.
