My list too - but I'd be willing to try moose, I've eaten antlered critters and thus far they've been quite tasty.

Veal, lamb, lobster (because it's boiled alive)...and anything else cooked in the same way, domesticated animals, game animals (tried to like venison, but I can't), giant spiders, snakes, rodents, vultures, and many of the same animals that others have mentioned. I wish I could get to the point where I didn't eat meat at all. I'm going to keep trying.

I won't eat anything I think of as a pet. I also refuse to eat baby animals, so veal and lamb are out. I don't think it's fair to kill them before they've even had a chance to live. I won't eat insects because the thought makes me cringe. So to sum it up, I guess I mainly eat the common meats of our country.

Opposum. Heard of people eating opossum pie. No way.


Basically, if the redneck duck hunting family on Duck Dynasty likes to kill it and eat it, I don't want to eat it.

yeah, these are definitely on my do-not-eat list as well!

There are maybe 3 million kinds of animals. I'll eat about .000001% of them.

There are not many sources of protein I won't eat, having been through several military survival schools. My partner and I were the only two students that ever gained weight in SERE school. We dined on porcupine and water lily roots. We roasted both in a Dakota hole fire. Mmmm good. The instructors were convinced we had somehow snuck out and gone to town. It was a really long way to town Could have taken a big snapping turtle, but we didn't need it.

I have eaten python, crocodile, monkey, prawns, many kinds of fish and cat. I would no longer eat monkey; not because of any compunction, but because of the risk of Ebola or similar disease.

I do not have such a list. I would be hesitant to try any cat... or uneasy about it. Same with bush meat primate. I can't think of anything else really.

Surprised at some of the answers, squirrel, dove, rabbit, etc are all great. They just need to be prepped/cooked right.

All you who say you'd eat just about any animal, how about slugs, wolf eels, centipedes, caterpillars, ants, scorpions, and earwigs?

It must be a military thing because I'd eat just about anything as well.

Well I normally wouldn't eat insects but hey if they are cooked right and I'm in a place where it is a dish I might try them. I've had fried mealworms and they weren't so bad.
