Here in Africa Texas it varies from country to country but in Uganda for example cups of "beer nuts" in a bar are actually small roasted grasshoppers. They are quite sweet and crunchy. In Zambia the equivalent are roasted caterpillars - and so on. Years ago when I worked for the Dept of Aboriginal Affairs in Canberra when the Bogong Moths were in big numbers up in the Brindabellas some of the local Aboriginals would bring in scorched (to get rid of the wings and legs etc) Bogong Moths for snacks! I caught several big trout under the bridge lights at Lake Burley Griffin when the Bogong Moths were around and falling into the water. A large muddler minnow worked a treat! No trout (or at best very few) in the lake these days. One wonders if the occasional "boof" goes on under the lights as there are some big cod in the lake.
