Habitat: The Jumping Bean Moth is native to deserts and other areas of Mexico.
Lifecycle: The Jumping Bean Moth lays its eggs on the flowers of the poisonous shrub Sebastiana pavoniana and a few other plants. When the egg hatches, it bores into the soft, young seed capsule and starts to eat. The caterpillar eats the seed within the pod and is protected by the hard pod. After growing a tremendous amount, the caterpillar pupates (goes into a stage in which it is turning into a moth). Eventually, the caterpillar leaves the seed pod, after metamorphosing (changing) into a moth.
