Persimmons attract anything?

Just curious. I planted 2 of them several years ago and they are doing great. Would love to hear that something is attracted to them.

Down here they're a favorite host for regal moths/hickory horned devils. The fruits are also eaten by many critters - persimmon is a tough, hardy tree, well worth planting.

Thanks Sherry,
From what I've been reading, I might have 2 males. That would be a bummer. (no offense to you men)......'cause I really wanted the fruit. Hopefully I have one male and one female, but I think that's highly unlikely. I guess I have to wait a couple more years to even figure out what they are. They haven't made any flowers yet.
