Absolute winner in our ranking. Sometimes instead it appears the whale, the seal (civic) or walrus. The mutilated corpses of animals love to eat almost all the Northern Nations. In Scandinavia eat the dead sharks. Recipes of this wonderful dish in different Nations differ little from each other – the animal buried in the ground, and after a few months dig.

According to one of the collectors of larvae: “the miners of escamoles is a special man with a brush, notoryctidae with them ants as they dig.
