    Snake eaters

    A friend of mine said he went to Florida and he stopped at a place to eat and on the menu was snake. Does anyone out there eat snake or have you ever tried it. I cant imagine eating snake. Kinda makes me sick thinking about it.

    I think I'd rather eat Spam than snake! I have a rather large hatred for snakes, dead or alive!

    I have had Rattlesnake a couple of times. Once in a stew with alligator Raindeer, elk and buffalo. It was one a camp out and recently three of our scout leaders had been working out of town at various placed in the country and brought back exotic meats to have in a stew. Then I tried rattlesnake fried. It is like eating cartilige it is real chewy.

    I went down to Louisiana this past summer and we went to a little cajun joint. There I ordered a platter that had Gator, Snake, and Crawdads. That was the best food I have eaten other than my granny's home cooked meals.

    I've never tried snake, and I don't plan on trying snake.
