How To: Cook scorpion

Cook scorpion

A great way to save the planet may be to stop eating beef and munch on crickets instead. They say it's very like a small lobster.

oh, c'mon. eating bugs is good for the environment! and high in protein. and crunchy!

What? Good for the environment? How could you possibly come to that conclusion?

as an alternative to eating larger animals / protein sources. they're readily available. easy to farm and don't pollute with methane like cows.

great footage here. when you see it fried it doesn't looked so bad. It's always creeped me how similar lobsters, crabs and scorpions look. Clearly there's some relationship-- almost an impossible coincidence. That said, i'd pretty much eat anything. This WonderDudeMike character is a real sally.

I'm a stomach pussy, I admit... YUCK!

The point of having cattle and chicken to eat is that we dont have to eat #$%@ like that anymore.

yeah

I would rather not eat the chemical laden factory produced cows and chickens that may kill me over the insects that, strangely enough, we know is much more healthy for us anyway. You may think that bugs are gross, but I think blood, pus, and bone bearing animals are a lot grosser than most bugs myself.

Woah! I never knew Scorpions glow in the dark. Makes it rather easy for their predators, don't you think?

they actually only glow under a black light and only a few types do.

Come on get a life, who needs it

i like some bugs

The practice of eating insects is called entomophagy
Most insects are edible. According to eatbug.com, there are 1,462 recorded species of edible insects. And they're quite nutritious. For instance, 100 grams of cricket contains only 121 calories, less than half of beef. A cricket contains only 5,5 grams of fat, compared to 21,2g of beef. Beef contains more protein (23,5g - a cricket 12.9g) but the 100g of cricket also contains 5,1g of carbohydrates, 75,8 mg calcium, 185,3 mg phosphorous, 9,5 mg iron, thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin.

Thank you, Dr. Science...

A tiny amount of liquor on a scorpion will make it instantly go mad and sting itself to death.
