Eating a butterfly or caterpillar may sound novel or revolting, but it
used to be de rigeur among certain ornithological PhD programs to eat
one's study animal (at least once).  Some researcher who collected often
chowed-down repeatedly and with apparent relish.  It's harder and harder
to do this nowadays I suppose.
