I’d expect the amazing adult moths to appear around mid of May.
Only ten days after breaking up their artificial winter, referring to the time spent in the fridge, the first adult Giant Peacock Moth (Saturnia pyri) hatched.
In fact, the temperature around 20 decrees Celsius made them quite active (see video).
It was a giant, vital male. Saturnia pyri, the giant peacock moth, great peacock moth, giant emperor moth or Viennese emperor, is a Saturniid moth which is native to Europe.

Nevertheless, it nicely shows the activity of the chrysalises waking up.
Due to the freezing temperatures outside I had to simulate a more suitable winter, and provide an artificial micro climate in the refrigerator.Follow The Butterfly Playbook on WordPress.comOnly ten days after breaking up their artificial winter, referring to the time spent in the fridge, the first adult Giant Peacock Moth ( Sienna holding a cocoon of a Giant Peacock Moth in her hand The video was shot bare-handed with no tripod, hence apologies for the shaking quality.

Furthermore, it is about following the transformation from ugliness to beauty, all the way. They would not survive the harsh winter outside in Finland.

This will later on also facilitate the hatching process of the adult moths. Housenky se z vajíček líhnou zhruba po 14 dnech, v závislosti na teplotě.
Breeding the hatched adults to produce eggs will be the first challenge. The first challenge has been passed successfully.This post is only about sharing some photos of the freshly hatched moth. Cocoons of the Giant Peacock Moth in a plastic box where thy overwintered in the fridge.
Male Giant Peacock Moth that hatched only moments earlier What species could be better for such a project than a majestic, large moth which is easy to observe and handle, also for children.

My the first member of Saturniidae, a family of moths,I’ve ever experienced with my own eyes. I opened the box every once in a while and checked all cocoons were still alive.
And that particular challenge turned out to be the ultimate mission.

Follow Saturnia Pyri Mixtapes to never miss another show. It is the largest European moth, with a wingspan reaching 15–20 cm.

The time has come to break up winter and give green light to the Giant Peacock Moths ( Chrysalises of the Giant Peacock Moth in Sienna’s hand for illustrate their size After being removed from their cocoon the chrysalises of the Giant Peacock Moth were placed in a breeding cage at the home office. This time, I will enter the loop of butterfly metamorphosis starting from the chrysalis, the pupa state of the butterfly. The next challenge is to get the moths hatching to breed them. Feeling a little loose weight (the pupae) inside the cocoon, like the surprise in a Kinder egg, proves the chrysalis should be fine.
