Do all of the butterflies and insects come with frames?

Yes all insects are mounted in real wood and 99% UV blocking glass shadowbox displays. All of the materials used are true archival materials and all of this is included at no additional charge.

Are all of the specimens real?

Yes they are real.

Where do your specimens come from?

They come from farms, aviaries, co-ops, breeders, collectors, traders and private individuals from around the world.

Are any of your specimens endangered?


Why are some of your butterflies and moths mounted verso or face down?

Most butterflies have completely different colors and markings on the inside and outside of their wings. When you look at a butterfly or moth what you see on one side may be completely different on the other side. About 3/4 of all butterflies and moths that we sell are available either face up or verso and some butterflies and moths only have interesting markings or colors on the outside (verso) so we only offer them that way.

Is the specimen pictured the actual one I will receive?

We do offer an ever expanding selection of hundreds of specimens that are the actual ones shown in the photos. You can find them in our One of a Kind category.  Check back often as we are always adding new items to it.
Since we offer over 1700 items at any given time we do use stock photos for many of the specimens offered for sale (those that are not desiginated as “one of a kind” in the listing) but we do guarantee that every specimen that you receive will be as good as or better than the one pictured.

Where are your displays made?

All of our items are hand made by us in South Dakota, U.S.A.

Do you sell to any countries outside of the US?

Unfortunately, we do not ship Real Butterflies or insects outside of the U.S. However, if you have a U.S. shipping address that we can ship your purchase to you are welcome to place an order.
