I love escargot
I don't even eat lobster, and the Spanish word for lobster is remarkably similar to the word for locust
Bugs--an untapped source of protein, in this hemisphere.
Yeah, I'd try a well-cooked well-prepared bug.
Hey, Roger. Lobster is my favorite food. Not in the bug family, but if bugs taste like lobster, I'll be out in Central Park with a net by the end of the week.
Of course, insects are small packages, so primates have to swallow a lot to match one fruit’s worth of energy. Our closest evolutionary relatives, chimpanzees, solve this problem by using sticks, leaves and grasses to “fish” ants from colonies — generally catching hundreds to thousands of ants per fishing session. At the upper extreme, one study estimated chimps in Nigeria can nab upwards of 22,000 army ants in one meal.
(In that study, researchers counted ant heads in chimp poop samples. To understand what proportion of insect heads make it through digestion into feces, one of the authors did a self-experiment several times: That researcher ate 100 ants “immobilized in whiskey” and counted the heads in “subsequent excreta.” For science!)
