Why Are Moths Furry. I'm not sure why moths are hairy (most, but not all moths have hair on their bodies). The antennae are dotted with lots of sense receptors that can pick up the scent of flowers or the pheromones given off by a potential mate.
Feathery antennae give moths a better sense of smell. So why do moths have dust? In a sense, this creates sloth fertilizer, pauli says with a laugh.

Yeah, any kind of anthro animal sona is furry basically. These moths have patches of iridescent green, blue, red, orange, and yellow. Featheries or avians or whatever you call birdpeople are also furries.
Moths And Butterflies Form A Large Order Of Insects Known As Lepidoptera.
Moths, in common with other insects, are invertebrates being. Furries is a blanket term. It is to regulate body temperature and provide protection from the environment and predators.
So Why Do Moths Have Dust?
Some moth caterpillars dig holes in the ground, where they live until they are ready to turn into adult moths. The tiny scales of a moth can only be recognized as such under a microscope. Studies have shown that the more moths living in sloth fur, the more nutrients — or “fertilizer” — that.

It isn't really hair like humans have: Moth larvae, or caterpillars, make cocoons from which they emerge as fully grown moths with wings. The mystery of moth dust:
Most, But Not All, Moths Have Fur On Their Bodies.
These scales are similar to the scales that you would find on a fish, except they're extremely small and less durable. Since moths tend to be active at night, and butterflies in the daytime, it may be that the hair helps keep moths warmer at night. Wingspan is from 2.8 to 3.5 inches.
