No, this isn't an episode of Fear Factor: A group of high school students in Ohio are eating bugs as a unique effort to raise money for land conservation in their area. Members of the school's Wilderness Survival Club participated in the annual "Bug-A-Thon" on Wednesday, and the array of snacks included everything from beetle larva to crickets -- which the club president described as tasting "sort of like fried chicken skin." Some of the bugs were seasoned, fried, and put on pizza, for students with weaker stomachs. Yum!
