Ewwwwww.So there is a significant source of easily raised, cheap, OPSEC friendly and nutritious source of food. Oh, and the taste? If pan fried, alot like popcorn .
Although we don't have them here, I kinda wish we did. I hear they are good eating. :thumb:Porcupine.
Not kidding. Slow moving. You can kill them with a rock. Very nutritious. Just watch out for quills when skinning. Takes a long time to cook (4-6 hours) so go stew pot over a camp fire.
Had in Korea - they aren't bad. Just don't tell people what you are feeding them... which is kind of hard because you can tell by what they look like so turn it romantic and feed them with a blindfold :As much as my EEeeuuuuu factor kicks in at the thought of it, you do pose a good argument for meal worms as a good source of protein. Hmmmmm, I'd give it a try....fried you say?
