People eating bugs alive has something going for it... experts are still trying to figure out what that is, but there's definitely something. Gross insect eaters reign in infamy on the internet, where they come to share their culinary adventures: scorpions, cockroaches, black widows; you name it, they ate it. But insects make up only a fraction of live animals consumed online. Some people have been known to dabble in rodents, fish, or even reptiles.
While many of them are out for a quick 15 minutes of fame, there are those who seem to be spurred by nothing more than sadistic pleasure. Whatever their motivations, the people who ate creepy crawlers deserve at least quick look, and maybe a change in their diets.
Guy Rips The Head Off A Frog
In what appears to be a fish market in Asia, the man above rips the head off a frog before eating its intestines. The people around him don't look impressed; if anything, they're brainstorming ways to forget what they just saw. None of this bothers the perpetrator in the least. Towards the end of the clip, he flashes a smile while holding up the frog's body.
Rats And Pro Wrestling Gimmicks Don't Mix
Down in Australia, Matt Maloney threw a party where he bite off a rat's head. Then, to keep things rolling, he took three shots of vodka, got punched in the face, and had a chair broken over him. This display won't get him into the WWE, but it did get him a much needed visit from RSPCA Queensland (an animal rights organization). With a warrant in hand, the RSPCA rescued a snake and the remaining mice from Maloney's home.
This Baby Rat Eater Has PETA Hot On His Tail
It takes a certain type of person to eat a baby rat on camera. You know, the type of person you'd want to avoid. This man fits that description, and the rat guts he sends flying towards the audience stands as gruesome evidence.
Understandably, PETA feels this man should be committed for the sake of the community. In their eyes, his lack of empathy is a sign of antisocial behavior that could take a turn for bigger and more violent crimes.
A Cockroach-Eating Competition Turns Deadly
Edward Archbold looked poised to win it all at a bug-eating competition in South Florida. At one point, he devoured so many cockroaches at a time that he swallowed some whole. When it was all said and done, he cleared a bucket of roaches and over 60 grams of meal worms (35 three-inch monsters to be exact).
The prize of an ivory ball python (worth about $850) seemed to be his for the taken. He planned on giving it to his friend as a present, but never got the chance. Minutes after the contest wrapped, Archbold collapsed and was rushed to the hospital. There, he was pronounced dead–the cause of death being asphyxiation.
