The Insect Museum of West China

I didn’t even know there was an institution known as the Insect Museum of West China, at least until it made the news for being the repository of this fearsome-looking bug:

Giant Insect

Frankly, I’m glad that the Insect Museum of West China does exist, though, and surprisingly beautiful it is, too. (Though it’s described as having 400,000 million specimens in its collection; surely a misprint? That’s a lot of bugs.) It does raise the question, though, of whether there is an Insect Museum of East China. And this is apparently the largest insect museum in Asia — where in the world is there a bigger one?
