Moths are not just drab brown insects. They are diverse in colour, shape, and size. They also have ecological benefits from pollination to feeding bats and birds.

Have you ever wondered what the difference between a moth and a butterfly is? Well, generally speaking moths tend to be stockier and have furry bodies, whereas butterflies are smooth and lean.

There are also eight differences between the two, but to tell quickly and easily is how they rest. Moths rest with their wings open, whereas butterflies tend to rest with their wings closed. However, you will also find that many butterflies “sun bake” with their wings open.

Books on moths can also be interesting. So, here you’ll find two fiction and two information books to enjoy.
