SINCE last week villages in the upper reaches of the Navosa region have been feasting on the endemic nanai (Cicada) that last emerged eight years ago.
The nanai, which appears on the Fijian $100 bill, is in a beetle-like form known as nymph and stays in this form until it rises out of the soil.
National Trust of Fiji project officer Jone Niukula said for eight years the nanai was burrowed underground, feeding off minerals from the soil and tree trunks.
