Status: No Conservation Concerns

This stuffed animal turned living creature is a Cup Moth (Altha sp.), Limacodidae that almost looks too cuddly to handle. Well, nothing is ever toocuddly to handle.

Its fuzzy little legs and plush wings kind of make it look like this weird creature is made entirely out of fluffy clouds. I’d like one as a snuggle buddy.
