Local residents carefully selected crickets for cricket fighting in the largest cricket market in Shanghai on Monday.  

Fall marks cricket fighting season in China, a tradition in China that has a history dating back to the Tang dynasty (618-907 A.D.).  

In China, crickets are more than just insects. Locals often put them in the "ring." In recent years, cricket fighting has gained popularity with new generations.  

Cricket fighting has been listed as an intangible cultural heritage. Cricket-fighting matches will be held in Shanghai in mid-September.
