Edible Buffalo Dung Beetles
Bag of roasted edible Buffalo Dung Beetles (Onitis sp)
This bag contains approx 20-30 Buffalo Dung Beetles (Onitis sp). Dung beetles are harvested in northeast Thailand during the monsoon season. They are found in nests under Water Buffalo Dung. The dung beetles feed on the nutrient rich dung during the evening and early morning when the sun is not too fierce. During they day they return to their nests under the soil. Dung beetles are collected only once per year and then quick frozen, cleaned, roasted and then dehydrated to lock in flavour and nutrients. They are then seasoned to taste. Dung beetles are consumed as a delicacy in northeast Thailand. They are an aquired taste.
