Man Eating Bugs: The Art and Science of Eating Insects book image

You Zhiming, a young scorpion salesman, allows a scorpion to climb up his arm as a woman and her son choose scorpions for dinner in Guangzhou, China's Qing Ping Market. Scorpions in China are used as both food and traditional Chinese medicine. Scorpions are in such demand that they are raised domestically (ranch style) by Chinese entrepreneurs. They taste a bit like sautéed twigs. (Man Eating Bugs: The Art and Science of Eating Insects page 93)
