Fried Tarantulas in Cambodia

Posted by rod - 21.07.2010

Do you fancy one of these big black hairy Tarantulas which are a delicacy in Cambodia and are consumed either deep fried or as a cocktail brewed together with rice wine and jack fruit. Cambodian‘s first started frying Tarantulas in 1975-1979 during the the Khmer Rouge regime where there was a widespread food shortage. Eating a spider is also consider to be medicine helping against back ache and apparently helps children with breathing problems. Would you want to eat one of these eight legged friends?
