Have had frog legs, already mentioned, ants in chocolate syrup, fried grasshoppers in some kind of peanut oil, very biblical experience, crocodile, rattlesnake, and West Texas chili, does that count? Hey I'm still here.

The most unusual thing was turtle soup. This was actually extremely delicious, with a glass of Sterling Silver Cabernet 1995.

Another interesting encounter was as a Rangeland Science major in college. I hung out with several Entomologists (bug specialists). These guys would identify tree beetles by their taste. It was a little disturbing watching these guys pick live bugs off of bushes and trees and then share their find with each other over hmms and haws of what species they were tasting. Made that beer at the end of the day go down rather easy.
