These little buggers have been eating my lemon tree....until I found them !!!!!
The liquid at his face has a really rotten odour for defence and there is also a pair of orange horns that protrude when he spits the liquid, I could not get him to keep the horns out long enough to photograph them, but caught them as he retracted them (orange blob on head)
Please try original size

I would never eat these Alex they stink, they were outside.
Mopani worms are harvested and eaten, there are restaurants that have them on their menus, I have eaten them and they are quite tasteless more like flour and water but if cooked in spicey sauce the skin tastes good......
