Pol Pot

Pol Pot

During the time that Pol Pot ruled Cambodia, at least 1.4 million Cambodians were killed or died. Some individuals loyal to him were even killed for failing to find enough “counter-revolutionaries” to execute. As a result of starvation under Pol Pot, Cambodians began to hunt and eat Tarantulas in the countryside for sustenance. Tarantulas have since become a specialty snack and popular treat for tourist.
