What kinds of meat have you eaten, besides the standard four -- cow, pig, sheep and goat?
In America, I have:
Rabbit
Squirrel
Bison
Deer
Moose
Caribou
Whale
Seal
Bear
Alligator
Bullfrog

Traveling abroad, exotic meats are very expensive delicacies. That I know of, I've had camel, horse and guinea-pig. I passed on the dog. it was there but over my budget.

Beside cow, pig, sheep and goat.
Chickens
Rabbits
Pheasants
Deer
Brains
Tripe (in soup)
Alligator
Snails
Ducks
Geese
Bison
All kinds of shellfish and many ocean fish.
Caviar
Ostrich

I don't consider these animal foods to be exotic. Maybe not typical of the mainstream American diet but not exotic.

Most of the meats listed here are still considered land mammals so not really exotic. Just not the usual farmed creatures. If you want to consider an exotic it has to be something like a reptilian or ocean sea creature to be truly exotic. If you were to replace chicken with squirrel or rabbit meat. If made into familiar dishes like chicken nuggets. Majority of people people have no clue. Organ meats are mostly being processed into pet foods but lately people are buying them for carnivore diet plans.

I've eaten a lot of those listed above. As someone mentioned above, I've had horse a couple of times and it was good.

I've also eaten:
sea urchin
sea cucumber
shark
snake
gator
frog
turtle
bison
some meat on a stick in Bangkok, so it could be who knows what, but it didn't taste bad. I didn't get sick so that was important.
