She's said it will bite me... Now what is this, it looks so dangerous. Oh man... they are selling everything. They are buying snake.
I'm asking them why are they buying this. He's gifting me this... He's not taking it back.
I'm in China's biggest and most popular city Shanghai. This is also most developed and advance city in China. There are a lot of kids here, seems like it is a school. It's 11:00 am, I don't know if they are coming to school or going home.
People ride cycles and electric cycles a lot in this city. There are a lot of them. We are in Shanghai's or even world's most unique market.
This is the market of birds, insects, flower,... Only local people know about this market. Now I'm entering the market. There are many plant shops in the starting. This weird noise is increasing as I'm entering this market. I'm sure you can also hear it.
There are many insects here. She is feeding them also. She is putting food for these insects in this cage. They have come to shop here. They are here to buy these insects. I don't know what this insect is but this looks very dangerous.
She is telling me to hold it but I'm afraid. He is saying it will bite me. Does he know you. He's trying to talk to me but because of language barrier, we are unable to talk. This is why I said in the beginning, this market is very unique.
Many people are here to buy these insects from Shanghai and all across. They are of different price. This is very local to the people of Shanghai. It is a traditional market. Very few shops are left now. You can hear how much noise these insects are making.
There are two different size of insects. Smaller one is of 2.75 USD and the bigger one is of 3.5 USD. He has bought this insect. You can also buy these cages for your insects here. People here buy these insects as a pet, as a mode of entertainment.
In the ancient times local kings used to conduct fight among these insects. It is written in history books that they use to do this for their entertainment. Many insects and animals used to die in that game. Many people are visiting this market to buy these insects.
People are looking into the cage to select their insect. Hello! But I don't find any difference in all of them. This lady has bought that insect with cage. She got scared of this insect. This is the food that these insects eat.
This looks like some vegetable or sausage. The insect has been transferred to the bigger cage. She is very happy after buying this insect. Older people still get themselves entertained by these insects. Now she is paying her. Now she will hang it in her house and hear the music it makes.
In 1980s and 90s this market used to be so popular that people used to come here from all over China. Close to 100,000 people used to visit this market in a day to buy birds and insects. This market used to be the place where people used to socialize before internet. I've never seen such market in my lifetime anywhere in the world. I'm in shock after visiting this market.
People here want to buy the insect which is loudest. There are many different kind of cages, double decker, triple decker... Many different types of Chinese cricket and cockroaches. As big as you want and as small as you cant even see from close. She told me not to touch any of them, their bite can be dangerous. Although it is in this container, I'm still afraid to touch it.
This looks so disgusting but still people keep these as a pet. These small insects are fed this. They insert these capsules filled with food for these insects in their container. All of these insects are from the same family "crickets". Yes, this name is same as the "Cricket" game.
The noise is so loud that I'm unable to hear anything but myself. Hello! They are also selling some exotic insects here. There are statues of Gautam Buddha in different shapes, sizes, color, ...
They are selling some things from ancient China. Imperial dynasties used to be here. The king used to be here. People used to fight here. For their entertainment.
Bloodshed used to happen here. It's written here. Animals used to get killed here.
By fighting each other. There are many buyers and shoppers here. They are coming to buy. People are enjoying by peeping inside the cage. Nihao. They are enjoying.

I have never seen such a market in my life. I am very surprised. I am shocked to see such a market. How can it be? Really? Is it a mobile phone? How is it in Chinese? I am tourist from India. I am tourist from India.
Look at this. There are many shops here. People are asking for animals which have loud voice. You can hear it from far.

It is for time pass. These small insects are fed like this. These small plastic boxes are filled with food. They are very small. They are very small. They are kept in it.
All these insects are called Jhingur. Jhingur insects are called cricket in English. Cricket game is called Cricket in English. Cricket. As I am coming in, there is so much noise that I can't hear anything else, I am just listening to myself. There are many insects here that are called exotic.
You will not find them in the world or very few will be found because they are on sale here. There are many statues of Gautam Buddha here. In different shapes, different sizes, different colors, different forms.
I don't know what items are on sale. Old ancient China. Now look, apart from insects and birds, there is an animal market here. There are many different types of animals here. Oh brother, such a market, brother.
I am saying it again and again, brother, it is very shocking, it is very surprising. Look here, there is also a tortoise here. Now the tortoise is not of one type, the tortoise is also of many varieties. Small, big, different shapes, different sizes of tortoise.
Look at the size of the tortoise, adult tortoise, teenage tortoise, baby tortoise, infants, everything is on sale here. The shell of this tortoise, the outer body part, has been colored by people. The parents have made a different design, very unique. I don't think there is such a place anywhere in the world, apart from China. The shopkeeper is saying, don't go too close to the animal, it will bite you.
Look at this, a live snail, maybe it is called a snail, with its entire outer shell. The girl has come to buy with her mother. People are very friendly, super friendly people here, everyone. Oh, the girl is buying her favorite tortoise, which is colored.
The shell of this colored tortoise has been colored, painted, a different design has been made. The girl left the knife in front of the tortoise. I am afraid to touch it, they are picking it up so easily. I think a bargaining is going on, this aunty is the shopkeeper.
