Scorpions

These are usually what you think about when you’re walking in the desert and contemplating all the things out there that can kill you. In China, some choose to turn the tables on these tiny killers. Boiling scorpions is supposed to render the poison in their tails harmless, and they are eaten in soup or fried as a snack in China. Apparently, scorpions have a woody taste and are raised on “ranches” in people’s homes — what a nice family pet!
