Item details

This listing is for one beautiful, dried and spread, Madagascan Sunset butterfly specimen, Urania Ripheus.

Are you a crafting or photography fanatic? I bet you can already think of 100 different ways to use this gorgeous, real butterfly. Let your imagination run wild!

Add this butterfly to a dry terrarium, shadow box, or wedding favor. Use it as a photography prop. The possibilities are endless.

Your purchase will include:
1 Madagascan Sunset butterfly, front and back as pictured above. This butterfly has a 90mm wingspan. Your butterfly will be ready to take out of the box and use right away!

Please note: Our butterflies must be handled delicately. This butterfly must be kept away from moisture or prolonged direct sunlight. Please do not place this butterfly near living plants, as tiny bugs can eat away at the beauty of the butterfly.

We cannot promise the antenna's will arrive intact. They are extremely fragile!

Our butterflies are imported from butterfly farms around the world, which raise butterflies and collect them once they have died; the average butterfly lives only 3 to 4 weeks. Butterfly farms provide environmental and economic good to the countries in which they are located, so your product will be environmentally and economically friendly as well as beautiful.

Love my butterfly! It's so beautiful and perfect. The shipping was fast and the packaging was great. The little darling was very protected. Will definitely be buying more from your shop!
