If you think Bombyx cocoons are fascinating, then you'll be gobsmacked by these. The Tussah silkworm is wild, which means it eats in the wild. The cocoons are harvested from the forests where they feed. They're huge compared to Bombyx cocoons; each one is about
1 1/2" long, not including the pedencal stem. This stem, with the ring at the end, is what the silkworm attaches itself to the treebranch with. Each of the cocoons has been cut, and the pupa removed.
