Interesting Facts about Luna Moths:

Also known as the luna moth, Actias luna are one of the most famous moths in North America. The caterpillars are also green and as a defense mechanism, they click as a warning to potential threats and may sometimes regurgitate intestinal contents, which have a deterrent effect on most predators. The elongated tails of the hindwings are thought to confuse a bat’s sense of echolocation, giving the moth ample time to escape.
