The Comet moth or Moon Moth is a large silk moth found only in certain parts of Madagascar This moth being bred in captivity within a few breeding areas as well as few zoos in Madagascar. The larve feed only fresh eucalyptus leaves and this makes it harder but still possible to breed them.

The Madagascan Moon Moth is one of the world's largest moths. The males can have a wing span of 8 inches and a tail length of over 6 inches. As a Moth they will only live 4 or 5 days and are only fertile the first day after eclosing from their cocoon. The larval cocoon (chrysalis) has holes in it to allow drainage and prevent the moth from drowning in a rainforest climate.

ABOUT THE BUTTERFLIES AND INSECTS WE USE:
All of the real Butterflies and insects used in our framed shadowbox butterfly art have been raised on natural cruelty free tropical farms around the world. These educational farms, aviaries and co-ops provide a real source of income for native people who would otherwise have to sell trees off of their land or raise cattle which are both ecologically disastrous. Tropical insects are important members of these fragile ecosystems. If their natural habitats are allowed to disappear, then they to will vanish forever. Everything possible must be done to preserve them.

Proudly hand making the highest museum quality framed insects one at a time since 1992.
