The life history of silk moth with the help of figures of various stages: The female 'silk moth' lays eggs. From these eggs the larvae come out. These larvae are termed as a 'caterpillars/ silkworms'. These caterpillars / silkworms feed fresh leaves of mulberry. After this the silkworm changes in size or shape and then becomes a "pupa". Pupa first weaves a covering to hold itself, which is termed as cocoon. It develops inside the cocoon into moth. After this, it comes out as an adult female or male silk moth.
