    In terms of survival, are they safe to eat? I'm just curious as to how they taste like when their pincers and head are discarded. Has anyone tried eating these bugs? How did it go?

    Oh, but I'm squeamish just thinking about these creepy crawlies. Now, are you folks just joshing, or have you really eaten a centipede? I don't even like to look at them, let alone touch them.

    Don't you dare get into my stash of centipedes. I'm trying to cross them with a chicken to yield more buffalo wings per bird.:tinysmile_twink_t2:

    I think I'd have to be pickled before I'd even be willing to try one. lol My guess is centipedes shouldn't be eaten. If they are toxic to other animals, odds are, they are toxic to humans.
