Zimbabwe Worms
In this photo taken Monday Jan. 7, 2013 Mpokuhle Ncube begins to prepare harvested mopane worms by squeezing their insides out, 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)
