Witchetty's are an edible species of grubs live in the roots of trees in the ground. The grubs can be eaten raw or briefly cooked on the coals of a fire and they have a nutty flavour. They are hunted using diggin sticks and coolamon, found in the coolabah trees, the bean tree, from Ngalkirra, Mulurrpa, from the snappy gum and from Kalkati. The only coloured witchetty is from Kalkati and is purple coloured. The one from the snappy gum is pink Witchetty and is given to babies to help them put on weight.
