Our very own butterfly wrangler, Jay Forehand, has started a Butterflies LIVE! blog. This is great news since he is living, eating and sleeping butterflies. OK, he’s not eating them, but you know what I mean.
Jay has an INCREDIBLE 1-minute movie of a Papilio Dardanus emerging.
And, the other great news this week is that we just received our first Atlas Moth — the largest and most famous of the moths. The Atlas moth can be 10-12 inches across. Check out the photos of this guy!
