Madagascan Comet Moth
One of the most beautiful and spectacular moths on the planet!
After many years of trying to source this wonderful creature from the rainforests of Madagascar, Stratford Butterfly Farm is delighted to have on display the beautiful and spectacular Madagascan comet moth, comet because of its wonderful tail.
They are bright yellow in colour with fantastic examples of predatory defence eye spot markings on their wings and can have a wingspan of up to 20cm!
It is currently on display in the Discovery Zone alongside the equally stunning Atlas and African comet moths. If you want to see these amazing creatures you will have to be quick as they have a very short adult life.
