Knowing that. . .
































Could you bring yourself to eat one? Apparently they taste like shrimp: http://eattheplanet.org/archives/200

Pill bugs are way too small to bother with.

Pill bugs are way too small to bother with. Yeah. I would be hard to get the meat out of those tiny shells.

You could always just pop them in your mouth like M&M's. :eww:

Consider this: http://museumvictoria.com.au/discoverycentre/infosheets/-crustaceans-at-the-bottom-of-the-garden/


In fact, the crustaceans in the garden are more closely related to prawns, lobsters and crabs than they are to insects.

You probably don't find the idea of eating crab cakes or shrimp cocktail gross, so why should pill-bugs be any different?

Well, it was more of a joke, especially the part about eating them like M&M's. Second, I actually probably would find it gross. I'm not much of a seafood person. I have wondered what lobster tastes like though.

Well, maybe you could start with smaller crustaceans like pill-bugs, and then work your way up to "bigger game" like lobster. :yummy:

Sounds like more trouble than it is worth. I do not have a problem with the idea of eating them, but why waste a perfectly good cantaloup?

Lobster is good, but I think shrimp is tastier.

Ivo, you could always dress them up like ponies.

That might be easier with lobsters than pill bugs.
