Zimbabwe Worms
In this photo taken Sunday Jan. 16, 2013, Mpokuhle Ncube hangs from a Mopane tree in search of mopane worms for harvesting 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)
