On the internet, no one knows you’re a bug.

This is not, definitely not, a representative picture of the insect, er, person who runs this blog. Definitely.

No, these aren’t ants attacking an insect, this is an assassin bug (Acanthaspis sp.) decorating itself with the CORPSES of its prey - after it’s liquefied and sucked out their innards. Assassin bugs do this for disguise, to confuse their prey and also to form a protective “meat shield” that masks their scent. Read more and see other amazing insect eating photos: http://wrd.cm/1knMiDI via WIRED.Photo: Nicky Bay, see more of his work:http://bit.ly/1gdh6Bi

Should We Eat Bugs?

What’s tasty, abundant and high in protein? Bugs! Although less common outside the tropics, entomophagy, the practice of eating bugs, was once extremely widespread throughout cultures. You may feel icky about munching on insects, but they feed about 2 billion people each day (Mmm, fried tarantulas). They also hold promise for food security and the environment. Emma Bryce makes a compelling case for dining on bugs.
