A Cambodian girl shows to travelers a live spider clinging on her shirt at the town of Skun, Kampong Cham province, 75 kilometers (46 miles) northeast of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Tuesday, June 29, 2010. The town is the well-known place for selling deep-fried spiders to travelers, who stop by on their way to and from the country’s northern and northeastern provinces. Live spiders are also put into rice wine to make traditional medicinal liquor.
