i'll remember till the day i die my Dad in the basement, skinning and prepping a rabbit for dinner. he made the most delicious stew with that bunny that i can ever remember eating; in fact, i think that was probably THE best meal i've ever eaten.
he still says i couldn't possibly remember that cause i was still in pampers then, but i absolutely do.
i was at a friend's house in 8th grade, and they asked if i wanted a steak. i said, 'sure, thanks'. not till i was done (and it WAS a very good piece of meat) did they reveal that it was possum.
i shudder even thiniking about it now.

I think I've had the pretty much standard unusual stuff like everyone else - Elk, alligator, rattlesnake, etc. Nothing too strange stands out except the texture of sea urchin (but that's a different forum).

Nothing too crazy, but my most exotic would have to be Emu and Antelope.

Probally the wierdest thhing I have eaten is "Mountain Oysters", which are young rams testicles, fried in butter with onions. I was all of about 5 at the time. They tasted good and I had no idea what they were so carried on eating.
Have also eaten Huhu grubs, which are a wood eating larve, also known as Witchie Grubs in Australia, They taste like crunchy peanut butter and are beautiful when injected with an egg and cheese mixture and sauted.
Possum has been on the list, have eaten dog in Papua New Guinea, also snake, horse I have not YET, don't think I've eaten cat atleast not knowingly.

I have had brain (goats and lambs) as a young child. I was not picky and would eat whatever was put in front of me (except crawling stuff and stuff that was not cooked). I thought it tasted like scrambled eggs (a lot creamier LOL). I have also tried kidney's and trotters (hoofs) of goat and lamb.

I am not huge into meat or organ parts anymore. I think of it now and I don't think I can palate them anymore.

Hare, which is a lot different than bunny, and lion.

Oh yes, and jellyfish and sea cucumbers and baby eels, whole.

Then the usual elk, bear, alligator and rattlesnake.

These were just a 'when in Rome eat what the local folks do' sorta thing, not that stuff we crave.

Really like hare though, it is much more of a red meat while bunny is more like chicken in texture.

Another wierd and wonderful.....

In Papua New Guinea as a kid I had the misfrtune to try octopus and banana fritters done in coconut crumb. I couldn't eat enough of them until I found out what they were. Then thought I was eating them before and they are quite tasty so just carried on.
