Photographer's Note

Picture taken in Skuon town - located between Phnom Phen and Siem Reap.

Spider and other insects have long been a protein source for Khmer people, particularly in more isolated parts of the countryside and in times of war and food scarcity. They’re still consumed by some as a crunchy, tasty snack and have experienced a bit of a resurgance due to demand from curious travellers. The small Cambodian town of Skuon is home to large tarantulas that are fried in oil and garlic and served up to passengers on the Phnom Penh to Siem Reap bus route.
