Edible Mole Crickets
Mole crickets (Gryllotalpidae) are thick-bodied insects about 3-5 cm (1-2 inches) long, with large beady eyes and shovel-like forelimbs highly developed for burrowing and swimming. Mole crickets are omnivores, feeding on larvae, worms, roots, and grasses. They are relatively common, but because they are nocturnal and spend nearly all their lives underground in extensive tunnel systems, they are rarely seen. Mole crickets are a popular and nutritious snack in Thailand. When shallow fried or baked and mixed with Thai herbs or other seasoning they have a pleasant taste and contain a good source of protein and vitamins.
