Death's head moths feed mostly on nectar from flowers and honey from beehives! They are able to sneak into the hives because they can mimic the scent of bees. This way, the bees do not recognize the moths as intruders and they can steal the honey, undetected!

Each moth may vary in size and coloration.
 
Unspread option will ship with wings folded closed.

Now with the option to come spread and mounted! Choose the spread/framed option and your specimen will come already with wings open and mounted in a 4 ½" x 5 ½" riker mount frame.  Riker mounts allow you to enjoy your moth framed or take it out of the riker to use the moth for photographs (Just remember how fragile they are! It may cause legs, antennae, etc... to break off if you take the butterfly out).


*These moths naturally produce some grease which may alter coloration, if present it can be cleaned off with acetone or other de-greasers.
