Eating Bugs at Growabrain.

Our pal Hanan's blog growabrain is a fantastic resource of neat and weird links on all sorts of topics.

Here's one such topic: entomophagy (that's eating insects for us cretins), featuring things like scorpion soup, cockroaches for dinner, Portuguese snail recipe. Yum!

For example:

In Nigeria’s far north-eastern Borno State, man is biting back against the desert locust. Swarms of migrating locusts seasonally strip the semi-arid region of its scanty vegetation and crops.

But Gambo Ibrahim, 27, a locust hunter, says the people of Borno have found a way of converting the desert locust’s assault into an annual banquet.

They eat the locusts which they call Desert shrimps
