This 12" X 12" acrylic display box is an interesting example of mimicry in nature. The three speciemsn shown have unique appearances that give potential predators pause. The Madagascar Emporer Moth / Suraka Moth ( Antherina suraka ) with its mimicry of the eyes of a Lemur, the Giant Yellow-Edged Owl Butterfly ( Caligo atreus ) with its amazing illusion of an owl and the Atlas Moth ( Attacus atlas ) for the snakehead wing tips.
All of our acrylic display boxes are handcrafted at our facilties in Killeen, TX. All displays include the species identification information and a packet of Novus acrylic polish. A keyhole hanger is attached so the box can be displayed either by setting on a surface or hanging. All of our specimens are ethically sourced from butterfly exhibits, butterfly farms and suppliers from around the world.
