Default Meal Worms

Yeah, you have to watch those creepy crawlies.

My wife works at a zoo. She helped them put up a display that included meal worms under a microscope.

Owls eat them all the time, what could be a problem?

Well the exhibit had been open for a couple of months and a couple from L.A. decided that they just had to try them. Apparently they belonged to a club where people fixed grasshoppers etc for meals.

About 15 minutes later, both were on the floor having trouble breathing because their throats were swelling up and ambulances had to be called. Fortunately, both survived. The meal worms were removed from the exhibit.

So Tres Huevos, I think you were right.
