Seller: butterfliesbymatthew (355) 100%, Location: Pendleton, Oregon, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 153325500849 1 (One) REAL -- LIVE -- Ceanothus Silkmoth cocoon. Hyalophora euryalus. Rarely offered. ***Cocoons have been cut open to determine gender and pupae health. If ordering 1 cocoon, a male will be sent. Ordering 2 cocoons, a male and a female will be sent and so on for a 50/50 mix with all orders.*** These cocoons are diapausing (sleeping through the winter) and will hatch in spring. Native to the Western US, this lovely silkmoth is on the wing in late May through June in Oregon. (Need a cage? We have some available here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/153326043256) Directions for care: Upon receiving put cocoon(s) into a sealed container into the refrigerator. Temperature of about 38F is perfect. Again, the container must be SEALED to prevent the pupae inside the cocoon from drying out. Check the container once each month. Remove any moisture, check for mold, reseal and put right back into the refrigerator. When trees outside begin pushing leaves, typically around May, remove cocoon from the refrigerator and put into a pop-up tent. (The emerging moth will need to climb up the side of the mesh habitat.) A mesh pop-up laundry hamper also works great. Mist the cocoon daily. The moth should hatch from its cocoon 3-6 weeks after removing from the fridge. Because this is a live item and there are many nuances to care, here's what we guarantee.Before shipping, we remove from cold storage and inspect the pupae for health before packing and shipping. (This species rarely shows movement during winter)We ship you a live cocoon, packed like royalty in cotton padding so it arrives safe.There are no other guarantees. Unfortunately, we are unable to assist further as the amount of emails from new "moth parents" can become absolutely crazy! (funny, but really not funny.) There are many good resources online. Research, and enjoy the process :) There is a lot to learn. ****Other items: We also make jewelry of various species -- check on www.butterfliesbymatthew.com and we can combine into the eBay invoice/order and shipping. Pop-up tents are also available. Condition: New
