Ants, snakes, dog, deer, worms, frogs and those kind? I was shocked to know that some of my relatives in the province a rural area in my country, eats those food. Say for example dogs, which for now is prohibited to be some sort of a viand (Thank God), i mean how could you eat that animal when I consider it my pet? Another is frog and snake, are they really clean amphibians? But really, I just wanna know if you tried or tasted some. If you don't mind ^_^

Crickets and worms. crickets are more shell than anything else as for worms the closest thing i can compare them to is peas. its a mind over matter type of thing.

Some peoples in Sarawak, Malaysia eat worms and didn't cook them at all. They got the worms from inside the trunk of the Rumbiah tree. This tree is use for making the sago. The worms lives inside the trunk and never come out until they become the bug. I guess, this worm is clean huh...

I was just about to say EEUUUWWWW.....I can't imagine to eat those animal except the deer...I think deer is not that bad as it is clean animal the only thing is that it is rarely available. I can't even touch the dog, snake, worms and frong...how I can eat them...I wouldn't eat those animals ever...that is totally gross....yeah I've heard that Filipino eats dog..it happen here in my country that some of the Philippines immigrant have their dog BBQ at the back of my grandpa garden which is border to their houses.

Yeah, some peoples enjoy eating these kind of food. In China, not sure north or south the peoples eat bees, and my own friend eat snakes and monitor lizard....you will never know how I feel when she told this to me. She lives in a village which we can consider as a bit far or may be we can say the live in a village jungle. I met her when I was doing my degree at the university.

I've had snake. Didn't like it. I have also eaten deer, rabbit, squirrel, duck, turtle, etc etc but I could never knowingly eat dog or cat.

In the past, I've tried escargot (snails) and octopus...I guess those are the most exotic foods I've tried. However, I've been vegetarian for the past 12 years so I don't eat any animals anymore.

In europe, eating frogleggs is a common dish, quite delicious in fact. It has the same taste as chicken, but much finer. When prepared, it's usually done with garlic and butter and you get presented with the leggs only, without the body which isn't eaten. When I was a little girl, I tasted it. I currently am not intersted in eating this dish as froggs are becoming rarer by the minute. As for the other animals - I'll stick to "normal" meat like cow,goat,chicken or turkey but also a very limited amount.I could very well live only from fruits and vegeatables, fish , nuts, soya, beans, whole grains.
