In 2001, Japanese farmers from Zentsuji in Kagawa prefecture came up with the idea of making a cube-shaped watermelon which could easily be packed and stored. The watermelons are grown in square glass boxes to mold their shape.
Also known as the Madagascan moon moth, the Comet moth is a large species of moth native to Madagascar. The male comet moth can grow fairly large with an impressive 20 centimeter wingspan. These moths are usually found in wet and rainy rainforests this presents a problem for the moth’s pupating young as too much water could drown them in their cocoon. To prevent drowning, the moths cocoon is full of small holes that water can drain out of. However most of the moths life is spent as a pupa and the adult cannot feed and only lives for 5 days in-order to reproduce.
