Alessandra Ambrosio snacked on a scorpion whilst in China.

The 35-year-old model has been in the Far East country on a promotional trip to open the new Victoria's Secret store in Chengdu.

Away from her duties as an Angel, Alessandra has been seeing the sights and enjoying the local culture and cuisine which includes dining out on a cooked arachnid.

The Brazilian beauty - who has children Anja, seven, and Noah, three, with fiance Jamie Mazur - uploaded a photo of herself chowing down on the scorpion on a stick on her Instagram account.

The accompanying caption read: ''Snack time #WheninChina (sic)''

Alessandra also used her account on the photo-sharing website to reveal what a great time she had at the opening of the lingerie specialist shop.

She wrote: ''Amazing China #vsloveschina #VSstoreopening #chengdu ... Sending love from the new @victoriassecret store in #chengdu (sic)''

Before heading to Chengdu, Alessandra made a stop off in Shanghai to unveil a wax model of herself at Madame Tussauds Shanghai.

Sharing her excitement to be immortalised modelling as an Angel by the attraction, she posted: ''FOREVER So honored to be a part of @madametussauds #Shanghai (sic)''
