The termite is a species of hymenopteric insects who feed primarily on dead plant material. There are several subspecies all around the world.

Lost on the African savannah in 1916, Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck and Remy Baudouin roasted a giant termite queen and ate it, while Indiana Jones was not interested in eating it despite Baudouin insisting it didn't taste bad.

According to von Lettow, the secret was to toast termite queens lightly, so they didn't get burnt on the outside.
