Tasty Tarantulas

One of the more exotic snacks in Cambodia are deep-fried tarantulas. A food born out of necessity during the meager years of the Pol Pot regime, Cambodians enjoy their crisp tarantulas to this day.

Tony, Beverly and I are quite experimental when it comes to food. But there are limits. The thought of stuffing a sizeable hairy spider into our mouths was almost too much to bear. But only almost. Watch this short video and see who’s enjoying themselves beyond what you’d consider normal.
