About Us

The Specimen Cave is a small family run business that was established in 2019. We used to breed reptiles, specifically Royal Pythons. One of our favourite things about reptiles were the colour and pattern mutations within each species.

This transferred very easily over to entomology. Each species has it's own patterns and colours that are simply mesmorising.

We purchased a framed Deaths Head Hawk Moth (Acherontia Atropos) and fell in love with it.

With a lot of research and hard work, we decided it was time to give entomology a go ourselves. We found the hobby to be relaxing and thoroughly interesting which made us fall further in love with all these stunning creatures.

We decided to share our creations with the rest of the world and thus, The Specimen Cave came to be.

Each frame is carefully put together here in the UK, with the hope that our care and attention to detail is visible in the final product. We pride ourselves in our customer service and look forward to helping you find the right frame for your home.
