Shake, rattle and swallow — snake is on the menu

Looking for a meal that has some bite? How about rattlesnake? Maybe some fresh cobra heart?

Like every other creature and plant on the planet, snakes are fair game for food. Some minerals are also part of our menu – you add salt to your steak or carrots don’t you?

While some cultures eat snake, it’s not a good supply of protein. Snakes, despite their size, have lots of small bones that help them move across the ground. The larger the snake, the greater the bone size. In the end, there isn’t much meat to be had.

Snake does make for some tasty soup and some preparations are designed for honored guests. Listen in, and we’ll tell you all about it.

Yeah, this guy likes to bite the heads off snakes — go figure.
