Antherina Suraka

A real moth set and mounted in a 6×6 inch wooden frame, approximately 1 inch deep. 

Not surprisingly, the Madagascan Bullseye moth originates from Madagascar. Like many moths, they live for just a few days and are used in the production of silk.

Postage and packaging is £4.99

Description

The Madagascan Bullseye moth is often seen in collections and butterfly houses owing to their attractive appearance. Likewise, they are popular amongst breeders, as they are fairly easy to breed. They are fairly large in size, exhibiting brown forewings and brightly cloured “Bullseye” markings on the hind-wings.

Like other moths, they have the ability to move their hindwings independently from their forewings. They do this when startled, showing off their eyespots in a rocking motion to discourage predators from attacking them.

Adult Madagascan Bullseye moths have a typical wingspan of inches (cm).

Our framed Madagascan Bullseye moth specimens have been sourced responsibly. Find out more about where we source our butterflies and moths from.

How to display

This frame comes with a single brass hanging hook which can be screwed into the rear of the frame, allowing you to hang it on a wall.

Alternatively, the frame is deep enough to stand freely by itself on a shelf.

Where to display

To preserve the colours of your specimen, it's best not to display your frame in direct sunlight. You should also avoid areas of high moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens.
