Caption: Eating grasshopper. Edible rice field grasshopper between a woman's teeth before being eaten. This grasshopper has been marinated in soy sauce and sugar. Grasshoppers belong to the order Orthoptera. In Japan, where this photograph was taken, insects like grasshoppers are tinned for sale. Grasshoppers are known as inago in Japan. The eating of insects, entomophagy, occurs all over the world, and includes ants, beetles and moths. Insects, along with arachnids such as spiders and scorpions, are good sources of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
