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

An Asmattan holds a collection of sago grubs (Rhynchophorus ferrugineus, the larvae of Capricorn beetles), extracted from the interior of a sago palm, Komor, Irian Jaya, Indonesia. The Asmat is the worlds's largest (and hottest), swamp. When roasted on a spit, they are fatty and bacon-flavored, although the skins are rather chewy. (Man Eating Bugs page 66)
