About Our Specimens
Insects are a natural product and as such small imperfections may occur. All the insects are permanently/professionally mounted to the backboard and cannot be removed without causing damage to the specimen.
These are not endangered, rare or otherwise protected wildlife. No specimen is listed on CITES and no specimen requires permits. We do not stock birdwing butterflies. We source some of our supplies of common, abundant insect species from Government regulated ranching cooperatives in many countries. Your purchase actually aids environmental conservation rather than detracting from it by encouraging the indigenous caretakers to maintain host plant areas. Furthermore, our black frames are not made from real wood. Ethical concerns over deforestation in many third world countries has led us to pioneer the use of timber substitute framing. All frames have glass fronts with a hook ready to hang. The use of recycled cardboard in our carry boxes also makes our product the complete eco friendly gift.
These butterflies, other insects and arachnids are REAL! We do not alter, enhance or otherwise modify their natural colour. Website images are as close as possible to true likeness. Some sizings of insect in frame maybe approximate.
