A favorite of the old mountain men was beavertail, of the four legged variety! Always been curious to try it, never got the right opportunity. Of course I might look at it or cook it and change my mind! Another favorite, and their all around favorite meat, was mountain lion. Again, I would have to at least try a little. Never tried rattlesnake. A couple of serious desert rat friends of mine skinned one they killed a handful of times but never could bring themselves to eat them.
I have eaten turtle, tree squirrel, a bunch of other things, rabbit and pigeon, memory fails. If a good cook would cook it I would give it a try! One day I had just ate a big plate of spaghetti at my aunt's house, a lady who is an outstanding cook! Went for a walk and there were two uncles out in a yard barbecuing. They called me over to have a piece or two but I was stuffed. As I stood around talking they kept calling people over to try it. Finally after at least a half dozen other people had tried it, JV turned to Buddy, "They like that armadillo pretty good, I guess we can try it!" I didn't join in. A high percentage of armadillos in Louisiana carry leprosy, legacy of being used as lab animals in the Carrville leper colony way back when, about a hundred years ago best I recall. Checking them in Florida a couple of researchers found zero leprosy out of a small sample of dozens. I had researched them and wrote a science report on them when I was in grade school so I knew they were called poor man's pork some places and supposed to be tasty. Never found out for myself! Possum on the half shell.
