My niece is in Botswana for the next 20 months with the Peace Corps (having begun her service back in October 2016). She was with friends and took this photo and WhatsApp'd it to my mother. I copied to include in my blog.
I think this is a mopane worm – an edible caterpillar that is a highly popular snack in Botswana!
Crazy Botswana Peace Corp kids. I like their adopted puppies too!
