cherrroy Measuring an impressive 8 inches across, this is the Atlas moth. These loving, trusting creatures, let you get within inches to snap their photos. I snapped this at the butterfly Conservatory at the Calgary zoo.

linziknights Visited #cranfieldscuriositycabinet at the weekend and was treated to a lovely Atlas moth to sit alongside the collection in the lounge and a beautiful vintage Moulfon taxidermy mount.... which now goes by the name Dave, a friend for Brenda and Colin. Dave resides in the 'yet to be decorated' hall. Thanks as always to James @thetaxidermist and was good to see your dad again and meet your mum. #cranfield #curious #moth #butterfly #deathshead #instagood #instadaily #vintage #taxidermy #atlasmoth 1d

mermaidmoonchild_ Would anybody be slightly interested if I started to sell stuff I have seen so many good sources recently and it gave me the idea to try start a online store and such along side my other job, I'd open some sort of online store with no confusion for the customers, I'd be selling such things as ( listed below and probably more) - taxidermy insects/skulls. - natural gemstones such as amethyst rose quarts ect. - vintage finds - tattoo related things such as artwork,prints, books. - vinyls -boho/vintage/gemstone jewellery
That's all I can think of, off the top of my head but recently I have seen some amazing things that not only my self would love to have in my home but I've seen some other things that I know some of my followers would collect or love. The website and items with be sourced and run my me and my partner, The prices would depend on the item itself and all things would be parcelled correctly to ensure you'd received your item in perfect condition all items would have a full detailed explanation to what you are looking at or buying with clear photographs with my business email attached for any questions you may have about an item. I won't start sourcing things until I know that some people are interested as I don't want to have stock I cannot shift. Let me know down below of what you think. ( photograph to show you a little idea of some if the things I will sell I've sourced these items in the last two week from different places. ) #taxidermy #atlasmoth #naturalgemstone #vintage #amethyst
