Scary species, good for men, people go to the fields to dig for half a million / day

Posted by Staff of goGardenNow on

VietReader reports on a "scary species" that people dig to earn half a million Viet Dong (currency) per day.

"In the season, people in Quang Nam bring hoes to the cassava fields to catch earthworms ...(Coleoptera) and sell them for 50,000-60,000 VND per kilogram.($1=25,000 VND)"

Why are these larvae so valuable? Because restaurateurs will pay high prices for the little creatures.

Does this sound appetizing? Learn more.
