Cocoons, eggs, livestock


For just 1$ per month, I offer eggs and cocoons of the most incredible moth species in captivity.

Where does Bart get all his livestock? He must have the best contacts in the world! Is it possible for me to recieve eggs or cocoons of these species? Yes and no. I mainly only offer this service to patrons via Patreon or people that have used other ways to donate in the past. Because of extremely high demand, I am unable to statisfy everybody  – I get tons of messages every day asking for eggs – because I am very well known on social media, YouTube and more. For every species I breed, I get ten requests for eggs.

I prefer to trade them behind the scenes with people that offer me unusual species OR people that have helped crowfund my website and breeding. This way I can reward the people that have supported me and my goals, plus this way I can avoid trading with the “general public” – something that is difficult for me, because I often have little supply to statisfy a gigantic demand because of my many followers on social media that will ask for eggs every day!

To use this A) be a patron and B) send me a private message stating that you are interested, after that you will be on the list. This can be via email, Facebook, YouTube, Patreon (preferred) wordpress or any other platform.

I mainly only ship to the USA and Europe, depending on your geographical location livestock could be outlawed or logistically impossible to recieve. I do not ship to tropical countries around the equator, since I believe importing exotic Lepidoptera is a threat to wildlife in these localities.
