Fried spider is a delicacy in Cambodia. This specialty snack is a popular attraction for tourists. The spiders are bred in holes in the ground in villages north of Skuon, or foraged for in nearby forestland, and fried in oil. The spiders are a species of tarantula called “a-ping” in Khmer and are about the size of a human palm. At nicer restaurants, the cost is $4.25 for 4 spiders.
