Haven't eaten snake never would eat a snake, I don't see how someone who owns snakes or just likes catching snakes could ever eat one. Almost like having a pet dog then eating dog for dinner. I'm a vegitarian and was a vegan for a while and eating this way I find to be quite healthy, I'm an elite runner and could have been one of the fastest runners on Ontario last year had I not hurt my leg, so not eating me does not affect you physically.

I'll double that statement.

I was born and raised in Brazil, i've tried alligator meat, frog meat and cat meat, the only part of the gator that they actually cook is the tail believe it or not. It's all white meat, i wouldn't go as far as to say it "tasted like chicken" but more like fish, very tender. Quite delicious actually. Cat meat just tastes like sh*t....lol!

I haven't tried snake but if the opportunity was given, i would go for it.

I don't know about you guys but i really enjoy meat and i'll be eating it to the end of my days.

Back home in asia my grandaunt used to own a chicken farm and she would get Retics coming at night to "steal" chickens often...i remember taking part in skinning one and having fried retic that day...it was pretty good considering that it was still moving when my grandma served it up... other snakes that i have eaten include some weird ball like organ of the cobra fresh out of it...and a little bit of the blood...We used to have asian water monitors as well...we'd cook curry with those...and sometimes our malay neighbours would offer us if they got one...
Sounds cruel i know...but that was a long time ago and when we were living "in the outback".
of course i wouldn't go eat it on a normal basis...but have i eaten it...yeah....

I too had snakes.
Not too bad. They're actually quite good. Drank blood and also this 'ball' thing (I think that it's the liver or something). It's said to cure asthma. Also snakes are eaten in Asia for warmth. Usually when its winter time, tons of snakes are killed for snake soup. I've eaten, fried, soup, skin (kinda raw...) and cooked. My friends and family always asks me what kind of snake it is just by looking at the skin...and I tell you...most of them are either Taiwan beauties or Blue beauties...since they are larger...

Talking about gross...there is this guy in Hong Kong that does 'shows' in killing the snake. He actually grabs the snake by the head and then bites of the snake's head...as an attraction..I went up to him and told him all the bateria and all that and asked him to stop doing that 'attraction thing' or I'll be going to the SPCA to sue him. Don't know if my threat worked or not...but soon he was gone...and I haven't heard of him anymore.....

Cure Asthma?? Wow...maybe thats why my grandma made me eat it!! i used to have asthma when i was so much so that i get breathless quite often...i never knew why it went away when i got older...maybe its cos my grandma made me eat that "thing"..hahahaha...thats great!!
As for snake blood...i know back long ago...my grandma was telling me of her dad smoking opium in opium houses...during that time..they had rattan beds for people to lay on...and these bed often had cobras or other snakies under them...according to my grandma...her dad would usually press the head of the snake against the floor and then bite off a section of the tail...and suck it dry like a straw!! Weird guy if you ask me...hahahahaha...
And as far as taiwan and blue beauties go...well....dont know if you can do much to the sellers...i mean theres tonnes of cultural beliefs behind snake cures in asia especially...and selling them is probably legal for medicinal value... They're relativley cheap too compared to the pet trade here....heh...but maybe they were bred just for this purpose.....to be eaten...just like we (the common people) breed cows and chicken.
Aphrodisiac?? i don't know..the only aphrodisiac i know about in chinese medicine is the Tiger's *****....and probably rhino horn powdered drink with ginseng and bear claw or something like that. ask the chinese medicinal man...there are a few at pacific mall in markam..hahahaha...

I've haven't eaten snake yet, but I definitely would love to try it I've heard of people eating lizard tail before... I personally have only eaten Alligator before down in the states at Papa Deauxs
