CAM.meb.1.xxs.Tarantula seller Sok Khun takes a dainty bite of one of the deep-fried tarantulas that she sells at a roadside market, Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. ?The tarantulas are greasy, and taste like the oil in which they are fried. The legs are crispy, and each big hairy body is a decent-sized chewy bite that tastes like?deep-fried tarantula. ?In the English language there are no words to describe it. If day-old deep-fried chickens had no bones, had hair instead of feathers, and were the size of a newborn sparrow, they might taste like tarantulas. That's as close as I can come.??Peter Menzel. (page 48. See also cover of book) .
