Spiders in Cambodia

Spiders are not liked by many people. People especially don't feel comfortable near large ones. It's hard not to notice them because their bodies are covered with thick hair. But in Cambodia, they are treated very differently. Now let's take a look at the story of Sokha and the spiders.

Sokha is a young boy from Cambodia. He isn't very tall. He's small for his age because he doesn't get enough meat to eat. His family raises geese, but they will only be served as food on special days. So, what does Sokha do when he wants to have some meat? He hunts for big spiders. To hunt for a spider, Sokha has to look for a spider's hiding hole first. When he finds a spider in a hole, he digs hard to make it come out. Sokha needs to be very careful because a spider bite hurts a lot. One time, he was bitten on the toe by a really large spider-it was almost 15 centimeters long.

Sometimes Sokha is lucky and can collect more than 10 spiders for his family in a day. After he brings them home, the spiders may be barbecued and then eaten with rice. For Sokha and his family, spiders aren't something scary. They are delicious food.

柬埔寨的蜘蛛

蜘蛛不被許多人喜歡。人們身旁有大蜘蛛時尤其感覺不自在。人們很難不注意到牠們,因為牠們全身被覆蓋濃密的毛。但是在柬埔寨,牠們卻受到很不同的待遇。現在我們來看看索卡和蜘蛛的故事吧。

索卡是一個來自柬埔寨的年輕男孩。他長得沒有很高。以他的年紀來說他算是比較矮小因為他沒有足夠的肉可以吃。他家裡飼養鵝群,但只有在特別的日子牠們才會被當作食物供應。所以,當索卡想要吃肉時要怎麼做呢?他去獵補大蜘蛛。 為了獵捕蜘蛛,首先索卡必須先尋找一個蜘蛛躲藏的洞。當他在一個洞裡找到一隻蜘蛛時,他用力挖來使牠爬出來。索卡需要非常小心因為蜘蛛咬傷是很痛的。有一次,他的腳拇指被一隻真的很大的蜘蛛咬到--牠近乎 15 公分長。

有時候索卡很幸運而且可以在一天內為他的家人獵捕到 10 隻以上的蜘蛛。在他把牠們帶回家後,這些蜘蛛會被燒烤然後和米飯一起食用。對索卡和他的家人來說,蜘蛛並不是可怕的生物。牠們是美味的食物。
