Interesting spiders

3 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

My uncle has been all over the world ,and done some odd stuff. I spent the day with him today,and somehow we got on the topic of spiders ,and he taught me a few things I didn't know ,including one about bats and spiders .

As a huge fan of bats ,I was appalled by that one .

He also told me ,about spiders (tarantulas mostly .Big hairy ones),as food .Turns out , he had it,in Africa ,said it cooked up,and tasted like crab .

He didn't want to offend the locals so....

*shudders*

Death by spider, not something I'd want to experience.

I thought they might taste like a "Blooming Onion". They sound crispy like that when roasted. A bit (or lots) of mayo/Dijon dip and good to go...
