Would You Eat This ?

Actually it is consumed in countries of South America, Central America, a few countries in the Caribbean , even Florida and some other States. I am talking about the Iguana, which is a specie of the larger members of the lizard family. Yes, the Iguana is a large lizard. It is referred to as " The chicken of the trees" by those who eat it because it ' tastes like chicken' , but it is higher in protein and very low in fat. Imagine catching one of those or taking it home from the market to prepare it for supper?--I couldn't do it. Of course you can buy it already skinned and deboned. Would you be willing to try Iguana meat? Have you tasted any of the exotic meats available on the market? Image from Wikipedia

I suppose it depends on the taste and texture too. Long before l was vegetarian l attended a birthday party. Dinner was buffet style and l remember taking a hefty serving of what l thought was chicken curry. I had a few bites then l was informed by someone that what l was eating was iguana meat. I couldn't continue. Foremost in my mind was its not very appetizing appearance and the fact that it is in the reptilia class

IN Miami grandpa was laying by the palmtree and this woman had a big pot trying to catch it. SOmeone said she was trying to cook it. I went to her and said if you catch granpa and put him in your pot I am calling animal control on you. She left and went home.
