    After Dinner Talk - Andrew M Smith Collecting and eating tarantulas in Cambodia
    What does it mean? Is it mean Andrew M Smith eating tarantulas in Cambodia? Or is it about talking about eating tarantula habit of people in Cambodia?

      Just how it says.

      After dinner talk,

      Andrew M Smith - collecting and eating tarantulas in Cambodia

      A lecture about his recent field trip to Cambodia, I am not sure if they eat them themselves or just covering the subject.
      Pretty sure he will mention the fact its unstainable and wiping out large areas of tarantulas..

      Hope this clears it up for you.
