It has a really beautiful woven lattice structure that hangs about a foot below a leaf on a thin silk string. This is an unusual structure because the pupa, resting inside the cocoon, seems fairly exposed to the elements. The hanging likely helps to prevent predation from ants, and the bright orange color may serve as an aposematic signal to predators to prevent it from getting eaten. The tube part at the bottom is the 'escape hatch' from which it eventually will exit as an adult moth.

they are nice to look at unborn but when there are 3 of them the size of golf balls in your room, you'd wish the process ended right here );

This was porn in the 1920s.

The 1920's were great times.

The women weren't feminist bitches and they knew their place, and gangsters had class.
