This video is not for the faint-hearted. John Peter, hailing from Coimbatore, India, eats all sorts of insects and reptiles alive! The 25-year-old is known as India’s answer to Bear Grylls who also likes to eat such creatures. Indian John is on a ‘prescribed’ daily diet of these insects! He eats anything; cockroaches, caterpillars, frogs, snails, lizards, dragonflies, spiders, ants, earthworms – even scorpions! And, he eats them when they are still alive.
John says, “I love people looking at me weirdly when I eat insects. I want people to respect me like they do Bear Grylls. People are disgusted when I eat stuff like earthworms and cockroaches but they’re amazed also. It’s a good feeling.”
Not only does John eat insects for his own pleasure, the south Indian man also aims for a Guinness World Record eating ’em creatures. Now, that is ambitious, we must say! As long as it doesn’t cause any health problems! Watch this video, but beware, it may make you feel like puking!
