The term 'Bushmeat' is used loosely here, and refers to anything and everything that moves, is found in the 'bush', and eaten... and that includes ants, edible insects, tarantulas, rats, bats, birds, snakes, and pythons. Needless to say, not much escapes the Cambodian palate.
Barking Deer and Wild Boar meat, brought down from Phnom Kulen some 60km from town, is not uncommon in Siem Reap markets; but it's in the more forested areas where most of the larger wildlife is hunted or trapped. Take Phnom Tnout, for example, some 3 hrs from Siem Reap, in Preah Vihear Province, and home to BeTreed Adventures, which, by the way, is an Eco Tour experience second to none. Check it out. There, wild dogs (Dhole), wild cats (Leopard Cat), wild cows (Banteng), deer (Mouse Deer, Barking Deer, Sambar), primates (Pileated Gibbon, Silver Langur, Long-tailed Macaque, Slow Loris), civets, porcupines, squirrels, badgers, otters--all, and more--are hunted for food and/or medicine. Even the most trafficked mammal of them all, the Pangolin--which shows up from time to time in Siem Reap, as Traditional Medicine.
