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

A Theraphosa leblondi, the world's largest tarantula, caught by Yanomami youths, roasting on the embers of a fire. Chaurino stuns the leblondi by whacking it with a stick, gathers its legs, and lowers it onto the fire. The spider makes a final hiss as its insides heat up and it shoots out a yard-long spurt of hot juice. Sejal, Venezuela.(Man Eating Bugs page 174 Top)
