Widgety Grubs – Giant Australian Tree Maggots

widgety grubs

Widgety grubs – giant tree maggots here in Australia, about the size of a human thumb. Eat raw and wiggling. I’ve tried them, they are kind of gooey and eggy, but they can bite your tongue if you forget to bite their heads off.

    Few Insects are truly disgusting to eat aside from those which posess a defence mechanism to release a horrible taste into your mouth. I have eaten Witchety grubs before, as well as a few other raw insects like honeypot ants and termites. All are very nice. Warthog Anus however makes me feel sick…
