All has been quiet over the winter - I now have 19 Jersey tigers, but they are all fine now. I added two more Dark tussock and another fox moth to my menagerie yesterday when I found them at Peatlands Park, NI. Oleander hawkmoth eggs should be coming this month.

Atlas moths

The atlas moth pupae have arrived and they are HUGE. There are 2 females and 3 males, so maybe will get caterpillars in the future.
Most larvae are doing well, but lost all my ruby tigers and foxmoths to the little mouse that lives in the garage. Will better secure it next time.
The Oleander hawk eggs have been set back by the cold weather, and will be arriving in March.
