So, amphibians and reptiles are not animals?

Wonderful. We need much more research into how good extinct animals tasted.

Snake - cobra at least - does NOT taste like chicken.
It makes outstanding soup, but it tastes like cobra.

Charles Darwin ate his way around South America and across the South Pacific on the voyage of the Beagle. An epic exploration of documenting similarities and differences in animal taxonomy and gastronomy that helped to form the bulk of his second major book.

Oh, and picking up parasites that haunted him the rest of his life.

"No, chicken doesn't taste like alligator" would be more accurate.

I paid $15 for a plate of "alligator poppers" at a cajun restaurant here in town. I don't know what I was expecting, but yeah it was exactly the same taste, texture, and consistency as overcooked chicken. If you haven't had it, you're really not missing anything.

Unless the portion was bucket o tots sized, you paid too much.

The alligator wings from the article sounded good. Meat needs to be cooked correctly and seasoned to the taste you are in the mood for.

\humans eat strange things
\\like hot peppers and garlic mixed with some onion, in a sauce on meat

Whenever I butcher rabbits, my cats always beg for the scraps... which makes me feel really weird because a rabbit with no skin looks surprisingly similar to what I would expect a skinless cat to look like.

Also, rabbit is delicious, but the meat is a little too mild by itself. All of the delicious bunny flavor is in the carcas. BTW, if you haven't tried this before, the best way to eat the loins is straight-up chicken fried.
