Tasty tarantulas!

The adventurous epicurean will want to sample all the local delicacies of the countries they visit - here, that includes lots of tasty tarantulas!

The small settlement of Skuon has gained for itself somewhat of an unusual reputation, being the undisputed Cambodian hotbed for tasty insect and arachnid treats. The particular speciality here is the ever-popular tarantula, deep-fried and lightly spiced, it makes for particularly good photographs - if not perhaps for a filling and hearty meal.
