Zimbabwe Worms
In this photo taken Monday Jan. 7, 2013, the insides of harvested worms lay at the feet of Sihle Nkomo as the harvested mopane worms are prepared for the market by squeezing their insides out before being dried, in Gwanda, Zimbabwe. In Zimbabwe as well as most parts of southern Africa, mopane worms are a staple part of the diet in rural areas and are considered a delicacy in the cities. They can be eaten dry, as crunchy as potato chips, or cooked and drenched in sauce. (AP Photo/Tsvangirayi Mukwazhi)
