Red agave worms are sold by the roadside near Teotihuacán, Mexico; the worms are placed in tequila bottles to certify the regional authenticity as well as the alcohol content of the brew (the worm would disintegrate if the alcohol content were too low). The worms are also pan fried and eaten in Mexico City and its environs. (Man Eating Bugs page 116 Top)
