Eating a Spider


Delicious Tarantula

Crunchy and slightly prawnish, a bit like a hairy land crab. What else is there to say? Central Market, Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

  4. Beautiful. Made me retch and laugh at the same time. I don’t think that’s ever happened before. Vicariously revolting.

    You’d better watch it. It’d make good preparation for the snacks that await you in Bangkok. There’s a pile of Mang Da Na Tod with your name all over it!

  6. Love it. You’re a braver man than me, Peter – although watching your amazing facial expressions during that little snack, I feel like I experienced every mouthful with you! Jeanie’s right: I think ‘vicariously’ might be the best way to enjoy Tarantula…

  9. Ok Pete that makes my little snail tantrum feel even more pathetic!

    I did nearly cry then for you…. Please do never ever think that i will ever be pursuaded to munch on an over sized house spider.
