Four mirrors butterfly (Rothschildia orizaba)

in #busy4 years ago


I have started a project to raise Orizaba silkmoths, also known as "Mariposa cuatro espejos"(Four mirrors butterfly) the scientific name is Rothschildia orizaba.

In Sonora, Mexico the Chrysalis of these butterflies is used as rattles for the Easter culture dances by the Yaqui Tribe. The chrisalis is called "Tenabaris"

The problem is the over exploitation of this butterfly. The specie is starting to disappear in Sonora and now they are collecting them from Sinaloa, Mexico (neighbor State) I want to encourage the re population of this specie. I will keep updating the progress of these silkworms and hopefully I can reach the butterfly stages.
