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.

I purchased a box for each one of my kids for their birthdays. My 17 year old daughter and 13-year-old son. They were so intrigued with dissecting the owl pellets that they spent easily an hour and a half doing it. We have a super cool shelf that we put all of the bones that we find at the beach as well as curiosities on. We've now added at least five skulls from rats as well as a ton of little bones at the kids found in their kit.
Happy Saturday! I just wanted to say, I had not heard of you until my mom sent me a link bc she knows I have a collection and all sorts of nature and animals bits. I ordered the curiosities box for a trial run to see what it was like. Honestly, I’m beyond impressed. The packaging, the sizes/qty, the description page, the actual content…it’s exactly what my goal would be if I were to build a box. Beautiful, interesting, informative, magical, fantastic. ✨🤍🐍🦴🦇🪲🌿🍄🌑🌈
It's like finding a secret forest hidden treasure box, filled with the collections of oddments gifted from the birdmoss world.
I purchased the Box of Curiosities and it is a beautiful collection of daydreams and wonder! I love the care in which it was packaged as well! Couldn’t be happier!
Oddities and nature, it doesn’t get any better than that! These precious nature treasures are proudly displayed with ones that I’ve found, it’s perfect!
