Do you eat geckos?

March 2, 2011 7:58am CST
I have friend who went to China. She told us that she ate some exotic foods. I know that some people eat bats, snakes, grasshoppers etc but I never expected her to have tried to eat a gecko! Are they really safe? I've been trying to search the internet about it to know if geckos are edible. I don't want to try it though. I'm just very curious as to how it would look like.

Hello Wuliaode. Thank you for this information. I wonder how that would taste like. Anyway, it is for medicinal purposes only and not something to enjoy as food?
