The Box of Curiosities is a special limited-edition box from the world of Birdmoss. It is offered separately from the monthly Birdmoss Box subscription. This collection of curated natural elements and specimens is an inspired addition to any cabinet of curiosities. It includes:
- Mysterious Document
- An instructional document augmented with marginalia, advancing your Birdmoss story
- Snake Skin
- A generous portion of boa constrictor shed skin, presented in a cork-topped milk bottle
- Owl Pellet Dissection Kit
- Kit includes a large owl pellet, tweezers, brush, and a glass jar to display your finds. Each pellet includes dozens of tiny bones from creatures such as mice and shrews. The photo shows a partially-dissected pellet and all the bones we found inside
- Mink Vertebra Display
- A single mink neck vertebra displayed with reindeer moss in a cloche. These bones were sourced from animal control and cleaned before I received them
- Iridescent Beetle Wings
- Ten elytra from Sternocera aequisignata beetles, presented in a cork-topped jar. They're beautiful for display, crafts, or jewelry-making
- Bat Nut Pod
- One bat nut pod, also known as a devil pod, horn nut, or water caltrops
- Pussy Willow Specimen
- A jar containing fuzzy dried pussy willow catkins
- Bonus seed pods, nut shells, or other natural elements
I have treated all of these specimens with respect and gratitude since they have come into my possession.

Box of Curiosities - Limited Edition Box
I'm so happy with all of the items I received in this box. Truly a beautiful and unique collection.
Loved this box. Just seemed a tad too expensive. Maybe include a couple more items?
What a little trove of treasures! The collection is just magical and it was presented beautifully. I feel like I had my own little journey and I have the curiosities to prove it!
I love my Curiosities box! I found each piece so special! I especially loved my snake skin because it happened to be the head, complete with eye caps and open mouth!
