Alligator Meat
 
 
Though we often consider American alligators menacing and fierce, they’re truly a creature of wonder. One look at this giant, lizard-like animal conjures an image of something you’ve only seen in books (or maybe Jurassic Park). The dinosaur connection is not just a coincidence—scientists believe gators have roamed the earth for more than 150 million years, managing to well outlive the dinosaurs, who became extinct 65 million years ago.

Praise for Andrew Zimmern's Field Guide to Exceptionally Weird, Wild, and Wonderful Foods

"...informative and surprising...this unflinching survey of global eating habits urges [readers] to challenge their cultural assumptions and palates." - Publishers Weekly

"Only someone as smart, fun and adventurous as Andrew Zimmern could have dreamed up and researched such an entertaining, engaging book that covers everything edible from the simply distasteful to the outrageously creepy. It's got an eeeeeew factor that will keep kids entertained, and a wealth of facts that will keep them informed." - Dana Cowin, Editor In Chief of Food & Wine

"Along with the enlightenment that comes with realizing not everyone eats like us, adults will be alternately fascinated and horrified by his latest. But children will be mesmerized--and I'm quite sure-- intrigued. This will be Andrew's lasting legacy, planting the notion in minds young and old that ‘that might not be too bad. I think I'll try that!’" - Anthony Bourdain

"If this book had a mantra, it would be “Try it; you might like it,” which is an apropos message for readers young and old." -- Booklist
