Who are you to determine which animals are appropriate for consumption and which are too "strange"? A lot of the animals on that list (Alligator,
Possum, Frog, etc...) have been eaten in rural areas by poor people who have classically had to make due with what they could catch.
Personally, I don't have a problem eating any animal, as long as it's dispatched in a civilized and honorable way. Sadly, I would hardly call most
slaughterhouses by either of those terms, which makes me a damn bloody hypocrite, although I do try and limit my intake of meat.
Also, pound for pound, insects are extremely high in nutritional value, much higher than their bovine and avian counterparts. Honestly, I'd eat
insects on a far more regular basis If they were more readily available in my area. As it is, I generally have to make a trip out to L.A. if I want
some good insect grub(s).
