Although they have several differences, moths and butterflies are surprisingly similar.

For instance, they both belong to the order Lepidoptera. They both have wings. They both have antennae. They both have bodies smaller than their wings.

But they do have differences. Butterflies have long antennae without hairs, whereas moths have furry ones. Butterflies prefer to be outside in the day. Moths are nocturnal, which is why they often appear at night. And moths have fat and slender bodies, but butterflies have long, slender ones.
