    Close, the balls are 3-4inch diameter.

    The 'u' is pronounced as in 'mud', Thetyim.

    My g/f says they must be eaten very quickly with one bottle of Lao Kao each. Tell us how you feel tomorrow.

    The hollow balls are formed from buffalo-shit, inside nests an insect to grow.
    I opened one, but these aren't quite 'ripe' yet, I'll get sme better quality pics in a few weeks:

    Stroll, you must find the 'factory' where they make them and do a Trip Report.
    Lots of nice pictures of people up to their elbows in BS busy making BS Balls.

    Thai farmers in the past were known to stake claims to buffalo droppings as their private property to protect the valuable beetles burrowing away inside, making dung balls and, ultimately, baby dung beetles.

    Dung beetles are best eaten as pupae, their inactive state when they have stopped being larvae munching on the inside of their dung balls, or as adults, after they have been purged in water for a few hours.

    With the advent of mass tourism in Thailand, dead dung beetles have become a popular souvenir item, sold to foreigners on the streets of Bangkok and other major cities for as much as 400 baht (nearly 10 dollars).

    Unfortunately, this excellent source of protein (100 grams of dung beetle has 17.2 grams of protein) and extra income for Thai farmers is swiftly disappearing, according to Leela Kayikananta, a senior scientist and expert on "commercial insects" at Thailand's Forestry Department.

    You discard the shell, of course, steam the insect larvae and chop it up to go into your nam prik. Eat with sticky rice and fresh field vegetables.
