I have been collecting and producing taxidermy for over 10 years and ensure all product are museum standard. I personally preserve, spread and mount all insect displays in my studio here in London. I use high quality frames handmade in the UK.
Each specimen may slightly vary from the photos as nature is unique. The specimen I work with are not rare or endangered and come either insect farming programs (often run by governments or conservation groups), breeders and sustainable sources. For more information, please see our ethics page.
