When most people hear ‘snake,’ they either panic or quickly take to their heels because snakes are widely known as poisonous species. But for centuries, the reptile has also served as a source of protein for many people and even used for herbal purposes.
In a recent post on lindaikeji.com, one Emeka Okudo shared photos via Facebook showing a group of men capture a snake and prepare it to be eaten.
Snake meat is said to taste like a cross between chicken and fish. Just like most fish, a snake has a single long spine and very few bones. Next time you aren’t sure what fish you have been served, double check to make sure you are not feasting on a breed of snake.
For those who have never seen snake meat, here are some of the photos from Emeka Okudo’s post.
