Learn how to take care of Acherontia atropos

Acherontia atropos
 is one of the most loved species by Lepidoptera amateur breeders. Why? Because the caterpillars are beautiful eating machines, they grow very large and heavy. In addition, adult moths pair and lay eggs easily. As adults, they can live up to two months and their thorax shows the skull which made them a celebrity among moths. Oh right, the moth squeaks in an adorable but loud way! These features should already be enough to give them a chance.

Rearing and breeding Acherontia atropos is quite easy, making them suitable for beginners too.
