Photo of the Week: Tarantula’s Taste Is Good, but Its Population May Drop

AKP Phnom Penh, April 13, 2018 —

There is no scientific research to prove yet, but sellers claimed that tarantula’s population is dropping due to high demand. Hundreds of tarantulas are caught from their natural habitat to supply the market. They are sold at 3,000 Riel (US$0.75) each, up from 2,000 Riel (US$0.50) in the last few months.
