Beware of The BLOG...it creeps, it leaps, it glides & slides all over the place.
I've eaten iguana in Mexico. I've also eaten Capybara in Central America. Frankly, I prefer grouper, beef steak, and bacon.It looks as if you Floridians have become iguana ranchers...
I'm with LL. I'm not eating those things.Have a fabulous day. ♥
I'd rather eat snails or other disgusting creatures.
Looks like they're all heading for the nearest vegetarian restaurant.."HELP!"If I was paying that kind of money per pound, I'd be wanting LOBSTER!
I think I'll pass on the iguana meat. Ewww....
Rather like the way they try to market nutria here, it’s not an easy sell.
Florida is becoming home to so many invading species like these iguanas. The difference between these and the retirees from Michigan is that you can't make purses from the latter's hides.
>you can't make purses from [Michigander] hides.Sure you can. Staying out of prison/psych hospital after you do it is the hard part.I've eaten various disgusting-to-Westerners creatures in Asia (but fewer than LL), mainly at banquets where it would have made a scene if I refused. It got to the point where I just said, "Don't tell me what it is. I REALLY don't want to know."
Ok, here's an idea. Iguana racing with Alligators and Crocs as officials.
LL: I've eaten snake and alligator, but I would've preferred fish, pork or chicken. I'm not big with steaks, just don't like chewy nature of the fatty parts. Invasive species are very hard to deal with. Back in the late '60's, all we saw as kids were green enole lizards which we played with all the time. Nowadays all you see are the gray/brown enoles which are an invader species that drove the green enoles into the trees. Right now the iguanas are in South Florida, but if they get to Tampa, I'll be out there trying to catch them just as I used to as a kid. I wouldn't eat them, but there's a bounty on their hides. Apparently, there's a market in the culinary world. Go figure.
Sandee: I used to love lobster until I started to learn about them. I don't eat them anymore.
Jan: Snails? I can't imagine how chewy they would be. I like chewy candy, but not chewy meat.
Z: I used to love lobster, but I can't bring myself to eat it anymore. A little knowledge about them ruined it for me. I agree with you about the outrageous price of iguana meat. I'll stay home and order Chinese... oh wait!
Trekkies4Ever: Me, too. I'd rather have something out of the replicator and wash it down with some illegal Romulan ale ;)
Messymimi: Yes, nutria are also as invasive as the Capybara. I won't say I'd never eat them, but I'd have to be very hungry. It's amazing what people will do under certain circumstances.
DaBlade: True, but other invading species don't drive slowly in the fast lane with their right blinkers on for miles.
Mike: Re: Michigandar hides, Lol. I like to know what I'm eating, but sometimes, esp. in business situations, you can't always make a scene. But if the texture is unpalatable to me, I'll run away, vomit, and lose my job.
Kid: We have plenty of them all, but I wouldn't trust them to not eat each other. Would make for an anti-climactic race ;)
