Eating a fried tarantula in the market at Skuon, which is where Highway 6 and 7 intersect to the northeast of Phnom Penh. If you don't think about what you are eating and just pop the spider into your mouth, the experience really isn't that bad. It's crunchy and a bit nutty, but there weren't any strong, off flavours that make it a challenge to eat. (Brian K. Smith photo | View slideshow)
