Caption: Eating stink bugs. Indonesian boy eating roasted stink bugs. These edible shield bugs (family Pentatomidae) discharge a foul-smelling liquid when they are disturbed. Once caught they are wrapped in leaves and placed on the edge of a wood fire until roasted. Stink bugs are rich in protein. The eating of insects, entomophagy, occurs all over the world, and includes ants, moths and grasshoppers. Insects, along with arachnids such as spiders and scorpions, are good sources of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Photographed in Irian Jaya, Indonesia.
