Had venison a few times. How it tastes depends on how it is prepared.

I don't care much for the taste of venison. I'd eat it, but much prefer watching them eat.

I had to google that one. I'd try it.

Had a chance to try elk, but missed it.

YES! In the restaurant at the big hotel in Death Valley we had rattlesnake fritters for an appetizer. Really, really yummy. We both enjoyed them immensely.
And this is not a rattlesnake; Argentine racer.

What about shark?

Here's a snake with legs. (common five-lined skink)

Cannot remember having shark, but having dissected and overseen the dissection of more than I can count, and seeing how oily they are, I doubt I would willfully, knowingly put shark in my mouth.

Is that a Willet? Looks different than the ones here.




Edit: Plumage. Nevermind. Found another pic of one that I have.

Shorebirds are wicked to identify, at least for me as I probably work at it no more than once every 18 to 24 months. IQ has been lost on the scan from a chrome, so details of the bird are a bit blurred, but without getting down a field guide, I cannot give it a name.

Juvenile Ruddy Turnstone is my guess.

Here's a Greater Yellowlegs.

Birds can be annoying: juvenile vs adult; male vs female, breeding vs non-breeding, sometimes two color morphs (a white GBH?), and some regional variation that might or might not indicate a different species. Identification can be exasperating. Then there are the easy ones, such as these black skimmers. Another scan-from-chrome that has suffered in the transfer to digital.

A closer look. It's really hard to get the eyes to show in these birds.
