Siam Insect Zoo

Name of an entomology museum, with a live insect facility, located in Mae Rim, Chiang Mai. It has a considerable anthology of all kinds of creepy-crawlies, including a very large collection of butterfly species. Most species on display are endemic to Thailand and the region, though Siam Insect Zoo also features a few rare alien creatures, such as the giant African Goliathus goliathus and Goliathus orientalis, both from Congo, that with a body length of up to 11 centimeters are among the largest square beetles in the world. Whereas the museum with dead bugs is indoors, the live insects are caged outside, in the zoo's garden area, which includes a butterfly garden. See MAP.
