    I don't know if it was the part I tried or the way it was cooked but it tasted like I had blood in my mouth. I'm a big meat eater and I don't think I've had anything like it. Except Kangaroo, its a little metallic too. I didn't much care for Crocodile either but apparently the taste can change depending on what it has been eating, mine tasted like a greasy fishy pork :speechless:

    It was pretty good but way to expensive and did remind me of beef.

    Part of your problem may have been that birds don't store fat inside their muscles, they store it under their skin, while mammals do store fat in their muscles. That is where the marbling comes from. It does alter the flavor.

    It's the people who have to pluck their feathers that I feel sorry for! :cry:

    Emu and that other large bird both taste the same to me. Very bloody, like venison almost. If you cook it correctly it tastes good but certainly it is not worth a big price increase over grass fed beef.

    Thank you!! We're top of the food chain and I like to try just about everything at least once. Normally, I find what you and @Dragonsegg already know. Snails, meh. Rabbit, Meh. Grass Fed happy cow tastes best. Salads are okay, but it can't beat a good taco!

    Snails, meh but I do like Rabbit (except for the little bones), I like beef and pork but can take or leave lamb (I'll eat it if the other 2 aren't available). I love Goose, just really hard to get in my neck of the woods (or its reeeeeaaaaalllly expensive). I'll try most meat once but I can't do offal

    There was a South African restaurant across from where I once worked, and they served emu that was better than any beef I've ever had. No gamey or metallic taste. Just flavorful meat well done! It was my favorite. I thought that all emu tasted like that. I suppose they just knew how to prepare and cook it.

    My mum's cat likes raw rabbit. She found her right in front of the main entrance way after my mum finished a walk. She had my step father pick up the remains.

    whoa, this thread just 'sploded! LOL. Can I catch up? Let's see - I am flabbergasted at people saying they live in places where it gets to BELOW zero (I don't care if they are referring to celcius or fahrenheit, it's still cold!) I can't even comprehend that type of cold. I'm flat out wearing a jumper in winter sometimes here.

    never been chased by a goose or chicken or emu - had a chook thrown at me once when I was kid which kinda traumatized me...and had a duck attack me and send me shrieking back to the car... as for emu's, I wouldn't want to be chased by one, but the two animals that scare the ever-loving daylights out of me are saltwater crocodiles and cassowaries. I'd be more terrified of meeting a cassowary (especially a male with chicks) than I would be of emus tho.

    hmm i have no art background whatsoever. I took art in high school sometimes cos it was an 'easy' subject and failed consistently. LOL. I can't draw a straight line.

    I've eaten crocodile (it was ok), kangaroo (meh) and buffalo (Cape buffalo, not those big hairy ones you see on american westerns) which was ok. Not a massive fan of any of them.

    My cat has never brought home a rabbit to eat. He has however, brought home two guinea pigs and laid their carcasses neatly under my computer desk for me to find when I woke up. I spent the next week with an ear out for the broken-hearted sobbings of some child in the street, and had a major guilt trip.

  12. I had a serial massmurderer as a cat. Nikky, male and the best hunter I ever had. He usualy killed a whole rabbit family each year, starting with the babies up to the biggest parent; he usually only eat the head (you know Brainz!:p probably he tried to get input where to find the others ;)). Doves were also a favorite and tons of voles. One time he lined seven voles in a neat line on the meadow; he just killed them, didn't eat them. Doves on the other hand, yummy innards!!! But he wasn't fond of the defeathering to get to the parts he wanted.

    But he never brought home guinea pigs, dead or alive........

    That would be a rare thing. Over here guinea pigs don't grow in the wild, but only grow in pet shops. It would take a really clever cat to break in there and hunt them out of their cages. :rofl:

    Now that this thread has been wholesomely regenerated and neutralized through banter on personal art histories and exotic animal cuisine (thanks, Satira), I've been hesitant to broach this subject. But because it does not warrant a new thread, especially since my observation is immediately (though obliquely) pertinent to the original post, I proceed.
    In Daztopia, an Orwellian protocol is practiced that can be summed up with the phrase, "Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia." Of course, this protocol cannot be addressed within Daz forums because "it does not exist." The recurring example is that of a product's or vendor's removal from the store without announcement, official or otherwise. Then all references (or references to references) to the event (non-event?) are repeatedly and systematically removed without the usual email notification, (for how can you notify someone that you have removed a post which they never posted)? The threads are not merely locked: They are expurgated. Not merely "page not found," but "page does not exist."
    This obliteration of history is something that would make the Ministry of Truth proud, but it is so surreal that, like Winston Smith, one might begin to wonder if one imagined it all. Unfortunately, it seems that this policy that is not a policy is not exclusive to Daz; rather, it has become near commonplace in the erstwhile land of free speech.
    I'm not trying to start a convention of nattering nabobs of negativitism or even re-rail a thread that has been so exquisitely and expertly derailed. It's just that, not being a Poser owner, I used to seek terms with which to replace "Poserverse," such as "Dazland" or "Dazania." But when I finally settled on a suitable term, to my (only partially feigned) horror, I grokked that it spoke to the actualities much more breviloquently (as this post attests) than I could ever hope: Daztopia.
    Yet, like those who have been awakened from the nightmare (called "reality" by those still under its thrall), I find that it is insufficient to seek coexistence with the world (or in this case, Daztopia) but that I must actively engage with it, seeing it for what it is without clogging my psychic arteries with condemnation, contempt or calumny. Those who rule this world shall ultimately be held accountable, but in the meantime I must live in it without being of it or judging it. With the clarity that comes through dispassion, I can see the scared children playing their games and trying to gain and guard the whole loaf because they imagine that they are illegitimate or orphaned and have no other option. I can intently ask and hold the hope that they shall grow weary of their slumber. And I can create.

    Yeah, I've seen this, and even had posts of mine mysteriously vanish. Amd I've seen the apparent doubletalk of the ToS saying offite links are considered commercial and disallowed but some folks seemingly are immune to being reprimanded for it.

    I don't think attempting to re-write history is a new thing but it does seem to be a growing trend. In the wider context I find it somewhat strange when some group want history removed or rewritten on the basis that it may cause offence when it is often the case that those most likely to be offended are not that bothered. I tend to be fairly easy going and take the view that we should not only live and let live but also try to understand things that may be alien or new to us but I do take exception to having things rammed down my throat. I resent being told what I should think which is why dislike the trend in UK universities to stop people speaking because they don't like certain views and I think this will ultimately backfire, but then I am old and grumpy and way past any potential visits to any university.

    I saw one such instance there several years ago. First the person was told to start a separate thread, then when that thread slowed down to where it was a few pages from the front it totally vanished.
    I haven't seen anything like it happen here.
