One A1 Pair Ornithoptera chimaera Available

Insect Designs now has one very nice pair of Ornithoptera chimaera charybdis for sale. You will find it on our birdwings page. We are able to post this internationally with a valid CITES re-export permit. However, sadly for our customers in the United States, due to extra paperwork required by customs in the USA, we are not able to ship birdwing butterflies to the USA. If you have any questions please contact us.
