Decked in a fuzzy coat of clown fluff is the Rosy Flannel Moth (Trosia nigropunctigera). It must be convenient to always be dressed in a Halloween costume. Maybe there’s a perpetual costume party going on in the rainforest and cloud forest habitats at altitudes between about 400-1200m… which is where this creature lives! Um, I’d like an invite, please.
I have a confession: I love animals. Join me and the rest of the Featured Creature community as we learn about the weirdest, coolest, and craziest animals out there. Including your dog, Mr. Scrufflebutt (if you submit him!).
