    Hey I went to an observatorium in Colombus Ohio, they have exotic Buterflys (INcluding Moths) But They dont let the rare moths Go (Lunar and Atlas) due to the damage they get while in the big Vegitated area.

    I dont meen to intrude but it is possible to breed them As they have done it hear!

    Kinda funny actually. Was in the local A&P parking lot, and some kid walking past me said "Woah! What is THAT?" Natually I looked to see what the fuss was about. There it was. The poor thing was half dead already. I assume it must have mated and done it's thing for the summer. It held still for the camera due to lack of strength for anything else.

    I hatched a cycropia moth once in college - found the cocoon while walking in the woods in February. Darn things are HUGE.

    Thanks for all the kind words!

    Watch for my next post tomorrow - found a snake eating a toad today.....
