With basic proper care your Bug Under Glass insect display can last a lifetime.  Just like any fine art, avoid direct sunlight, close proximity to heating, and humid conditions.

DO ALL BLUE MORPHO BUTTERFLIES HAVE THEIR ABDOMENS REMOVED?

Yes, because oils in this butterfly’s abdomen stains their beautiful wings after they pass, the abdomen is always removed. You can’t find a Morpho butterfly on the market today with an abdomen.
