Caterpillars are an important traditional source food in Bas Congo and can provide much needed protein to the usual diet. Most families find it difficult to get enough protein form other sources. Fish and meat are generally too expensive. Hunting has cleared out most of the larger animals from the bush and even many of the smaller animals, such as the cane rat.
