Zimbabwe Worms
In this photo taken Monday Jan. 7, 2013, Mavis Nkomo shows her mopane worms which she leaves to dry in the open after harvesting them 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)
