The New York Times pointed out that “the species is not endangered, but it faces threats from habitat loss and hunting.” After that, it was hard not to wonder: If people hunt giraffes, they must eat them. Meat [from] one giraffe can be equal to meat that one gets from four elands [antelopes].”
Considering this, are raccoon meat eaters?
Do all raccoons have rabies?
Raccoons—along with foxes (red and gray), skunks, and bats—are considered a primary carrier of the rabies virus in the United States. While any warm-blooded animal can carry rabies, these are the ones we call “rabies vector species.”
Take a cross between beef and mutton, add extra meaty flavoring, and you've got the taste of dog. The braised dog I ate was cooked in a clay pot along with huge cloves of garlic and chillies, it was mildly spiced with a splash of soy sauce and I detected a hint of cinnamon or anise in the mix.
But you'll probably never eat one for three reasons: they're not that easy to catch, even if you're a hunter. You most probably won't eat lion not because it's not legal -- because it is. It's legal both to kill and eat lion in the United States, though it's not legal to hunt them and then sell the meat.
Australians have an ingrained reluctance to eat their national emblem, but a number of chefs are now championing kangaroo meat as a delicious - and environmentally friendly alternative to beef and pork. But unlike any other butcher in Australia, or indeed the world, Dean Cooper only sells meat from the kangaroo.
Bears are omnivores, so their meat tends to taste like their last meal. That's fine if they last dined on berries. But if they've been eating, say, salmon, their fat will become infused with fishy flavor. "When you cook it," Shaw says, "it's going to be like low tide on a hot day."
2. Giraffe. “Properly prepared, and cooked rare,” pens celebrity chef Hugh Fearnly-Whittingstall, “giraffe's meat steak can be better than steak or venison. The meat has a natural sweetness that may not be to everybody's taste, but is certainly to mine when grilled over an open fire.”
It's similar to reindeer or moose. Whale tastes much more like its hairy cousins on land than its gilled neighbors in the sea. In places where gamey meats are common—like Norway, Iceland, and among the indigenous people of Alaska—whale is served straight up with little or no seasoning.
Grand Cayman Island—If sea turtle tasted like chicken, I'd fess up, but it really does taste like veal. I grew up occasionally eating mud turtles pulled out of the ponds on my family's farm. And mud turtle does taste like chicken.
Llamas are not aggressive or mean, nor do they attack. Most llamas are easy for anyone to handle or walk around. People in some South America countries eat llamas, but there is no meat market for llamas in North America like there is for cattle.
Hippos are still eaten in their native West Africa, even though poaching and war have decimated the population. But hippos can be as deadly dead as they are alive. In 2011, 500 people in Zambia were infected with anthrax after eating tainted hippo meat.
In the wild, giraffes primarily eat the leaves and twigs of acacia, mimosa, and wild apricot trees (also various trees and shrubs in the genera Commiphora and Terminalia). Still, their diet does extend well beyond the more commonly eaten plants just mentioned. They even eat some fruit.
Thankfully, these accounts give some hint as to what elephant meat actually tastes like: it's flavor is by turns “unpleasant” and “peculiar” and its texture varies between “coarse” and “slightly gelatinous.” Apparently, elephant tastes like Spam.
The taste was close to chicken or turkey but with just the lightest taste of seafood. Flamingos eat mainly shrimp, so that shrimp flavour comes out in the final product a bit - imagine a chicken and shrimp kebab in your mouth all at once!”
"It's a different meat, but if you like different, wild meat, you'll like seal." With a taste that is equal parts gamey and fishy, with a texture comparable with veal and duck, seal is a very dark meat which is surprisingly low in fat and rich in iron and Omega-3.
The giraffes that have been milked have been milked under controlled conditions by scientists.” Yes, one of the biggest things preventing giraffe milk from becoming the next big superfood is that it's nearly impossible to get your hands on giraffe milk. So what's with all this giraffe milk superfood chatter?
The penguin, as an animal, seems to be made up o fan equal proportion of a mammal, fish, and fowl. If it is possible to imagine a piece of beef, an odriferous codfish, and a canvas-back duck, roasted in a pot, with blood and cod-liver oil for sauce, the illustration will be complete.
An American trophy hunter has kicked off another social media furore after defending a recent giraffe kill in South Africa by claiming they were “very dangerous animals”. In one sense she is right – giraffes are big and strong and you certainly wouldn't want one kicking you. But attacks on humans are very rare.
Depending on who is doing the dining, shark meat tastes like chicken — or roadkill. It's meaty and mild — but has to be soaked well before it's eaten because sharks urinate through their skin.
Despite being the tallest land animal in the world, the Giraffe is actually preyed upon by a number of large carnivores that co-inhabit the dry savannah. Lions are the primarily predators of the Giraffe that use the strength of the whole pride to catch their victim, but they are also preyed upon by Leopards and Hyenas.
“They taste like “a piece of beef, odiferous cod fish, and a canvas-backed duck roasted together in a pot, with blood and cod-liver oil for sauce”—but eventually he convinced the crew's leader to make everyone eat penguin. Remember, Cook was a physician and was essentially prescribing this fresh meat as medicine.
