Death's Head Hawk Moth

Regular price $95.00

Acherontia atropos is commonly found in southern parts of Europe and throughout much of Africa, from where it is considered to be a native species.

In spite of negative superstitions attached to this hawkmoth, they're actually quite harmless and are only minor pests to beehives and crops.

The background photo was taken by MyMy Butterfly at the Westview Cemetery in Atlanta, Georgia.

This specimen is encased in a 6"x6" frame.
