Caption: Cooked cicadas. Cambodian woman holding a bowl of cooked cicadas for eating. Cicadas, which belong to the family Cicadidae, feed on the juices they suck from plants. The males have vibrating organs at the base of their abdomen which they use to make a droning noise. The eating of insects, entomophagy, occurs all over the world, and includes moths, grasshoppers and ants. Insects, along with arachnids like spiders and scorpions, are good sources of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Photographed in Phnom Penh's central wholesale market, Cambodia.
