Deep fried crickets are very crunchy but when you bite through them their insides squirt out and its horrible so my friend tells me. I can't bring myself to try a larvae type sqiggey looking bug. I've had deep fried crabs, shells and all which are really good. Kangaroo is pretty tasty as well.

IMO some of these things can actually taste good ,its just a matter of getting to taste it - of course it has to be cooked properly not eaten raw... : ) , i have experienced eating stuff like crocodile (tastes like a bony fish) , ostrich (kinda tough but tasty meat) , zebra , camel (this was apparently a somali speciality) , camel milk tea (this stinks but doesnt taste so bad) , common egg-eater snake (pretty tasty - had it on a camping trip) , omlettes from ostrich egg , - most of these are available at some speciality restaurants where the meat comes from farms which grow the animals for human consumption. Dont really have experience in the bug-eating department though...., might taste good , yu never know ; -) _______________________________________________ thechat mailing list - Ruttling and Strife and IPA. thechat at lists.evolt.org http://lists.evolt.org/mailman/listinfo/thechat http://lists.evolt.org/thechatarchive/ ____ While the US does not have a monopoly on stupidity ... it does seem to be an overly abundant natural resource.
