Greater Death’s Head Hawkmoth – Signed Fine Art Print


Information about the Death's-Head Hawkmoth:

The Death's-Head Hawkmoth  is a large Sphingid moth found in India and much of Asia. It's one of the three species of Death's-head Hawkmoth, also known as the Bee Robber. It is nocturnal, and very fond of honey; they can mimic the scent of honey bees so that they can enter a hive unharmed to get honey. Their tongue, which is powerful enables them to pierce the wax cells and suck the honey out. This species occurs from India, Pakistan and Nepal to the Philippines, and from southern Japan and the southern Russian Far East to Indonesia, where it attacks colonies of several different honey bee species. It has recently become established on the Hawaiian Islands.
