A beautiful moth in the worldwide silkmoth family, reigning from Madagascar.
This beauty feeds on a very wide variety of hostplants as a caterpillar. As an adult moth, it doesn't feed, instead living off its fat reserves stored up during the larvae stage. Silkmoths do have mouthparts as adults, but they are vestigial.
In response to predators the hindwings will move in a symmetrical circular motion to scare away potential birds.
Both hindwing and forewing earrings are available (see other listing for forewing).
Two gorgeous real Madagascan Bulls-eye Silkmoth wings, from one specimen for symmetry.
Wings have a gorgeous epoxy resin finish on each side.
Choice of .925 sterling silver ear wires, or hypoallergenic Niobium ear wires. (Niobium are less shiny, but contain no nickel. See picture)
