Sadly though both Nyarly and Fred are still alive, they have both shredded their wings on their late night egg laying jaunts through my room. I'm happy they are still alive and quite active, but sad because I had hoped to preserve them when they died. I might be able to salvage parts of the wings but that's it.

I had ordered a bunch of entomological setting equipment for this purpose. I'd rather it not go to waste, so I ordered a dry unmounted Atlas Moth from the same guy.






This is probably more ideal, as the specimen is completely dry and I am a beginner. So I will need to relax it, then set it again with its wings open.
