Butterflies, moths and caterpillars as pets

Pet is not the exact word but we have chosen it to be understood. Butterflies are spectacular, interesting and magical animals in all aspects. Also in nature they are bioindicators, where there are butterflies, surely, there is a balanced and natural ecosystem. Unfortunately, there are fewer and fewer spaces like this and the populations of these fantastic animals are declining at a very high rate.

Is it possible to breed butterflies or keep them at home?

As with any other animal, you have to be realistic and honest with yourself. Above all, the welfare of the animal must prevail and provide all the care it needs at every moment of its life and more so in the case of butterflies that go through several stages that have nothing to do with each other.

Diurnal butterflies, caterpillars feed on their food plant and when they are adults they feed mainly on the nectar of plants.

Night butterflies (moths), when they are caterpillars, feed on their food plant, when they are adults, many of them are born without a mouth, so they do not eat, but there are some "mixed" species that do have a mouth to feed (spiritrompa) .

It is essential, before acquiring one or several species of butterfly, to know in detail their care and prepare everything before their arrival, this will save you future problems, we are here to help you, ask us what you need to know beforehand and we can guide you on what species or species are better for your case.

We have species for more inexperienced people in this field and others that require more care or space.
