Skewered sago grubs (Rhynchophorus ferrugineus, the larvae of Capricorn beetles), roast over a fire in the longhouse in Sawa Village, Irian Jaya, Indonesia. When roasted on a spit, sago grubs are fatty and bacon-flavored, although the skins are rather chewy. Image from the book project Man Eating Bugs: The Art and Science of Eating Insects.
