    I do indeed like them! They are all beautiful. I especially like the Luna and male Io.

    What do you do once you raise them? Do you supply cocoons to butterfly conservatories or something?

    Are you sure they are all moths? I'm pretty sure I saw the second one making a cameo appearance in Men in Black... :fangs:

    Beautiful shots, man :)

    Thank you!
    If I have extra cocoons or eggs I do have a website to order them from but if I dont have any extras I just keep them, take pictures, or let them go. The Lunas and Io's are cool, both brightly colored! The Regalis are the biggest. I have an A. Io caterpillar now, they sting!
    Thank you all!

    Wow, I love moths. There are some crazy kinds out there. I caught my first luna the other day. He was gorgeous. Let me know about your moth website! I may be interested in some cocoons.

    He was flying down the street from me and I just barely saw him. Sadly, he was dying and he landed in the middle of the road and I ran up to check him out.
