Item came so fast and absolutely love it! The Specimen Cave is brilliant and quickly replies to any messages will definitely be back to purchase again. :)


A beautiful big comet moth. Lovely antennae, his markings are so pretty and intact they almost look painted on! Very well done. I have 3 moths and 1 butterfly from The Specimen Cave, all of them were posted ASAP and arrived in excellent condition. I would definitely recommend this seller.


Thank you! The item was delivered in a very well wrapped package. A beautifully made piece, great addition to my wall 😍🦋


Ordered 3 really lovely specimens. Excellent communication from seller and really quick despatch and delivery. I thought the minimal packaging was great and I didn't realise there was additional info/facts about the specimens on the back of the frame so bonus! Highly recommended and will definitely order from this shop again


Perfect specimen, even more beautiful in reality. Package well wrapped and with all the related details inside. The seller is always available to requests and questions and very kind :)


My moths are even more stunning in person and they are beautifully display. The Specimen Cave kept me up to date on what was happening and very swiftly posted them to me in eco friendly packaging. I absolutely love Madagascan sunset moths.
