Top Ten Animals We Don't Eat That Might Taste Good

The Top Ten

1 Swan Swans are birds of the family Anatidae within the genus Cygnus. The swans' close relatives include the geese and ducks.

ISSA Bird and chicken tastes so good so I'm guessing it'll be good - AlphaQ


This animal tastes good, real good. I remember when I was a kid, I ate roast swan only during Chinese New Year at my village. - RichardSSG

Probably tastes like a moderately richer form of goose. Marinated in rosemary and garlic, and you have perfection! - PositronWildhawk

2 Elephant Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Two species are traditionally recognized, the African elephant and the Asian elephant, although some evidence suggests that African bush elephants and African forest elephants are separate species.

A very rich meat. The dream steak, but one which would take longer to grill. - PositronWildhawk

3 Giraffe The giraffe is an African even-toed ungulate mammal, the tallest living terrestrial animal and the largest ruminant.
4 Bear Bears are mammals of the family Ursidae. Bears are classified as caniforms, or doglike carnivorans, with the pinnipeds being their closest living relatives.

A friend who hunts gave me a bear steak once. It was very greasy--not something I'd eat again. - PetSounds

Pretty much just like beef pot roast, so it depends on if you like that or not.

Depends on which bear. In Russia, they eat bear as a delicacy. However, polar bears can't be eaten because you'd die of Vitamin C overdose. - ethanmeinster

Oh, I have eaten bear before ^^ the time I had it, it was very sweet but hard to chew, it was very tough. I wouldn't say it's the best.. - CloudofMercury

5 Penguin

I've actually heard that penguins are some of the only animals humans will avoid eating, because their meat is tough and awful-tasting. The leopard seals obviously didn't get the memo, though.

6 Seal Seal, known as Pinniped, is a marine carnivorous mammals native to all continents, commonly to North America and Antarctica.
7 Rhinoceros
8 Piranha A piranha or piraƱa, a member of family Characidae in order Characiformes, is a freshwater fish that inhabits South American rivers, floodplains, lakes and reservoirs.

Probably light and crispy, served like battered whitebait. - PositronWildhawk

9 Seagull
10 Crocodile Crocodiles or true crocodiles are large aquatic reptiles that live throughout the tropics in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australia.

Not to be trite, but the truth about crocodile and alligator meat is that "it tastes just like chicken".

It would probably taste like leather. But then again we would take the scales off right? - nintendofan126

Crocodile meat tastes good. - RichardSSG

I've tried this at Mardi Gras

The Contenders

11 Human Humans are not exactly wild animals, but they are not domesticated either. Humans are proven to be the most intelligent species of animals on Earth. Humans' colours vary from almost pepper black to milky white.

There's a reason why there're cannibals... Nah really now this is disgusting. I love animals ( all kind of animals ) but you say eating a piranha or something is the same thing as eating a human. However, cannibals seem to like human meat so maybe it actually IS delicious... Whatever.

Isn't that cannibalism? - ArcticWolf

I think it tastes good

Whoever added this is a gross CANIBAL - donrodrigo

12 Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.


Some chinese eat raw dog meat with chinese liquor, I never ate it, but I guess that doesn't taste good. - RichardSSG

Dogs also taste good

13 Bat Bats are mammals of the order Chiroptera whose forelimbs form webbed wings, making them the only mammals naturally capable of true and sustained flight.
14 Sea Cucumber

What do you mean people don't eat them? My 99 Ranch market sells sea cucmbers, along with other meats hard to get here, like rabbit, goat, and squab.

They look so distgusting! Wait, maybe they do because there're actually very yummy and don't want to get eaten?

15 Tiger The tiger is the largest cat species, most recognizable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside.
16 Cat The "House Cat", also known as the Domestic Cat or the Feral Cat, is a small feline, a good hunter, and comes in a variety of colors and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated. They are highly intelligent and good at problem solving.
