WTF Was That?!: Male Moth Displaying Its Protuberances

December 16, 2013

This is a video (complete with party-horn sound effects) of a male moth being prodded to inflate its androconial organs. The androconial organs are responsible for releasing pheromones to attract lady moths. I don't know about you, but if I were a moth I'd want pheromones that attracted butterflies so my kids wouldn't be so ugly.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks again to crisi miki wiki, who, for two tips in one day, receives either a golden star or smiley face sticker, but not both.
