Zimbabwe Worms
In this photo taken Monday Jan. 7, 2013, members of the Nkomo family eat a meal of mopane worms and cooked maize meal outside their home 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)
