During my Peace Corps service in Zaire ('89-'91) and travels through W. Africa I got to sample a lot of critters.

Duiker, snakes, monkey (3x), grasshopers, fruit bats, some kind of woodpecker, palm weevil grubs (tasted like brown-n-serve sausages), camel, red river hog, civet, and elephant.

The best two:
1. pangolin or scaly anteater (I found out there were endangered afterwards, but they were really really good)

2. cane rat or grass cutter (think woodchuck)

The dog I ate was awful, even before I knew what it was. I also had some seal flipper pie in St. John's NFLD....definately not the best this I ever ate.

There is a reason why livestock is limited to a relatively short list of species, all over the world...they taste the best.

Pig feet, blood sausage, (pork sausage with a qt or so of blood in it), fried testicles of about anything are pretty good( mainly bull and turkey). I've got an iron stomach and am willing to try about anything at least once.

Golden Eagle has to be the best thing I ever ate. The taste is a cross between a seagull and a whooping crane.

Roasted Rattlesnake: First kill a snake.


You can cut it up anyway you want. Add butter, garlic, jalepenos and plenty of Tony's.



Cook on the grill for about an hour.

YUM.

I forgot to add snake, which I don't consider all that exotic, dog, and cat.
Seeing the pics of that rattler is making me hungry.
