Can Hamsters Eat Moths?

Moths comprise a group of insects related to butterflies, belonging to the order Lepidoptera.

Most lepidopterans are moths; and there are thought to be approximately 160,000 species of moth, many of which are yet to be described.

Most species of moth are nocturnal, but there are also crepuscular and diurnal species.

Some moths, particularly their caterpillars, can be major agricultural pests in many parts of the world. Examples include corn borers and bollworms.

The caterpillar of the gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar) causes severe damage to forests in the northeastern United States, where it is an invasive species. (source)
