Moth wings and Cobra

The wings of the atlas moth (photo inset) are decorated with patterns and symbols, which are strikingly similar to the curved head of a cobra (photo main part).

when the insect is threatened, it will fall to the ground and flap its big wings to make it look like the head and neck of a cobra. This rare insect usually lives in tropical and subtropical forests in Southeast Asia. The moth is known for its large size and distinctive features. Among moths, it has the largest wingspan in the world. A female atlas moth has a wingspan of up to 12 inches and a surface area of 62 square inches.
