Nutrition: Reptile Menus

SOME of you are not regular snake eaters.

For the rest of you, a study in The International Journal of Food Microbiology says that you only risk trichinosis, pentastomiasis, gnathostomiasis or sparganosis by eating crocodiles, turtles, lizards or snakes.


Did I mention there’s also a chance of Salmonella, Shigella, Escherichia coli, Yersinia enterolitica, Campylobacter, Clostridium or Staphylococcus aureus?

I know you like fresh, but freezing’s safer. It tends to kill the very small stuff that shouldn’t be there anyway.

ScienceAintSoBadRating = 5. (This study is still preliminary. And, besides. You eat snakes, you deserve what you get.)
