    Entomophagy, who does it?

    I'm wondering if any one of you take your excess of Meal/Superworms, roaches, and crickets and throw them into the oven as a snack.

    Because in all honesty, I might give the devouring of insects a try. (What's the difference between them and crab/lobster?)

    Any of you have any tasty recipes? And say I do like it, any idea which to breed?

    I've already got the Lateralis. Probably Super worms. Maybe wax or silk? Though I hear the latter are high-maintenance.

    We've thought about doing this as a club meeting... getting together and frying up some insects. Ha, the closest we've come though is the infamous roach-eating meeting.

    I've been wanting to buy these books: http://www.amazon.com/Creepy-Crawly-.../dp/089281747X and http://www.amazon.com/Eat-bug-Cookbo.../dp/0898159776

    Haha, sounds fun.

    Also, interesting books, I'm going to try and order one if I have any money left after the reptile expo, haha.

    Thanks for the pics! So, does this mean you're not getting a bug-eating book? hehe

    bug eating is gaining popularity as something that needs to be tryed... if they were ground up and make into something like an energy bar i think i could get used to it... im still a little bugged out by trying to eat anything that still looks like a bug, but im trying to nerve myself up too it

    I've eaten mealworms in stir-fry form, crickets in chocolate chip cookie form and raw of both. Only issue I have is with the liquidy center of the mealworms. It's kinda sweet but reminds me of mucus. Just not something I consider appetizing. I have no problem eating dead insects. It's the moving that bothers me.
