Tarantula Snack – level 1

25-10-2022 15:00

Tarantulas are big, hairy spiders. People in Cambodia eat them. They are a delicacy there. People eat so many tarantulas that they are hard to find. There are less and less of them in the wild.

Since they are so popular, their price goes up. The spiders are rich in protein and vitamins.

Difficult words: delicacy (something special to eat), be rich in (have a lot of something), protein and vitamins (a type of food which the body needs).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
