Had I not served 8 years in the Marine Corps infantry I would probably be like WTF too.  However, I can tell you this is just a case of Marines being Marines. Doing crazy stuff like this, its just, in our blood. Ask any veteran who’s done a training exercise with another countries military and I can guarantee that they’ll have some kind of outlandish story to tell you about a weird custom they learn while in that country. This story is no different. Marines taking part in training exercise Operation Cobra Gold in Thailand were treated to the delicacy after a class on how to catch cobras by Royal Thai Special Force. They also ate forest insects and learned how to pull the heads off of chickens. Check out the video.
