Tarantula SPIDER: Delicacy food in Cambodia


If you have a chance to visit Cambodia, you will be regularly offered platters of deep-fried tarantula legs to chow down on. The town of Skuon is famous for this furry, eight-legged delicacy, which is crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside and seasoned with interesting spices. The townsfolk started eating tarantulas in the days of Khmer Rouge communist domination, when food was scarce. We, people who are living in America think that spider food is dirty but trust me, it is rich of protetin but I dont even know how do they discover this food, there must have someone who start trying it first  

You can find more pictures of this snack food in Cambodia, very interesting
