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


The Top Ten

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

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

Who is "WE"?
At least 7 of the listed animals, including swans, are regularly eaten by humans. by the way, piranhas taste just like any other flaky white meat fish.

2 Elephant 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 Giraffe The giraffe is an African even-toed ungulate mammal, the tallest living terrestrial animal and the largest ruminant.
4 Bear 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 Seal, known as Pinniped, is a marine carnivorous mammals who native to all continent, commonly native to North America and Antarctica.
7 Rhinoceros
8 Piranha Piranha

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

10 Crocodile 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 Human Humans are not exactly wild animals, but not domesticated, either. Proven to be the most intelligent species of animals on Earth. Humans' colours vary from almost pepper black to milky white. Builders of the global civilization.

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.

I think it tastes good

Whoever added this is a gross CANIBAL - donrodrigo

12 Bat 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. V 1 Comment
13 Tiger 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.
14 Cat 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 colours and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated.
15 Dog 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

16 Sea Cucumber

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