Museum hatches largest insect
The Insect Museum of West China said on Tuesday that it has successfully hatched the largest insect in the world. The artificially bred stick insect,
is 64 centimeters long, according to the museum. The previous record holder, the insect’s mother, measured 62.4 cm. Zhao Li, the museum’s curator, found the mother during a field inspection in the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region in 2014. Zhao took it back to the museum, where it laid six eggs, including the record holder — which is now a specimen at the museum.
