The Amazonian moth belonging to the family of Urodidae weaves one of the strangest and most beautiful cocoons in the insect world. Urodidae cocoons have a coarse open mesh design with an exit at the bottom, and hangs like a pendulum on a long thread of silk from the underside of a leaf. The cocoon itself is bright orange colored and one of the most beautiful.
