I don't eat any kind of wild animal like squirell, frogs, deer, duck, rabbit, etc. I've cut back on beef, so cows are making their way onto the list of "do not eat". Actually, after typing that, I feel a little sick now. It's different when you refer to the meat as beef but when it's referred to as the actuall animal (cows), it seems kind of gross.

I can't be hungry enough, ever, to eat grubs.

I've eaten llama and it is nasty, so I won't be eating any of that again.

Chicken and beef are the only meats I will eat. I'm trying to wean myself off from meat altogether, but it isn't easy (for me). I will keep trying, however.

All other animals, reptiles, insects, fish, etc. I have no desire to eat.

I will not eat bugs. I don't care if they are considered a delicacy in some parts, there is no reason IMO to eat bugs. I most likely have eaten a bug in my food without knowing it, but to munch on a grasshopper or worm...NO THANKS! I won't eat any reptiles however I did try alligator once and it was rubbery. The only seafood I will eat is, lobster, crab, shrimp, flounder, sole, halibut and mako shark. Sometimes I eat mussels.

Before I started following religious Dietary restriction, I think I have eaten nearly anything that could not outrun me. Some things I actually found quite good

Honey pot ants

Although after getting to know a few of the critters I would never eat any again, even without the religious restrictions.

Chicken is pretty much my main "meat".
Duck is better cold than hot, IMHO.
