What's your favorite dead animal?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created August 16, 2012 at 3:38 AM

So other than the usual stuff people eat (beef, chicken, pork, etc.), do you have any favorites that you've tried?

I don't find these often, but I really love: Elk, Yak, Ostrich, and Tasmanian Ocean Trout (raw; this is something I've found at sushi places only)

I've tried snake and alligator and I'm not a fan.

I'm interested in trying kangaroo, camel, penguin, hippo (I wonder if there is such a thing as hippo bacon), and the critically endangered kakapo (if it weren't endangered, that is). Also I would like to try a hummingbird egg omelet, but this will probably never happen.

What weird dead animals (or organs, eggs, etc.) do you love to eat?

EDIT: Has anyone tried BEAR MEAT?

Pig....I love some swine. Bacon, ribs, pulled pork, heck make a broth out of the head if you like. Go ahead and talk smack on its omega ratios and such...I'm sitting here eating bacon dripping in fat right with my almonds. Think I'll have ribs for dinner too.

I'm a big fan of antelope sausage (I don't think it tastes good in any other way...too tough). Elk and bison are wonderful as well.

I had cuy (guinea pig) in Peru and actually loved it. Alpaca not so much.

For me, though, nothing beats a nice fat trout that you pulled out of the water yourself and roasted over an open campfire.
