About Attacus atlas rearing and breeding
Despite being fairly common in captive broods, obtaining an healthy stock has become quite difficult. While this population is not the biggest in terms of wingspan (we have seen many specimen around 25-26cm but never above), they score records in terms of pupal weight and number of eggs laid. A single pupae can weight up to 18-19g and, after emergence, it can lay more than 400 eggs
