If scientists can bring them back, which one do you want to eat first?

    according to legend, the galapagos tortoise was so delicious that for several years after its discovery it still wasn't recognized as a real animal, because crews kept eating them before getting them back to britain for study.

      I don't believe that. Tortoises are one of the most gentle, kindest looking beasts in all of beastdom. I don't believe that a captain would allow all of the caught tortoises to be eaten.

          Don't they have mammoth meat lab grown already?

          Surprised no one has tried to farm them for meat knowing this.

            Not very economical. Slow breeding, long time to become mature. Imagine feeding something for 20 to 25 years just to make a few meals out of it. Maybe some rich butthole could do it as a highbrow incrowd flex but it would never be a sustainable business.

          I think it was the fact that they were stranded on a ship with nothing to eat that made it taste so good.

        Dude the ship crew lived on dried peas and hardtack and beer. Anything they could eat that was different they probably did

      Well they still exist, they just take ages to breed. I don't think cloning would help unless you can figure out how to make them breed faster.

      I don't believe that. Tortoises are one of the most gentle, kindest looking beasts in all of beastdom. I don't believe that a captain would allow all of the caught tortoises to be eaten.

      He would if he was hungry.

      I know t rex would absolutely taste like shit but how cool would it be to say youve had t rex steak

      The leather would be amazing as well. Like crocodile, but thicker.

      I recall reading a post that the tail of pic related would taste like lobster and be one of the juiciest, tastiest meals around.

      Why lobster and not shrimp? Surely bugs should taste like other bugs instead of crustaceans?

      I highly doubt that, land bugs dont develop flesh like that, even the big ones, do they?

      Never had a big bug. You'd need to ask someone who's eaten giant weta or something.

      Darwin was probably just used to better food and more variety than the others. He was even a founding member of the Glutton Club at Cambridge University where they tried to eat as many strange animals as possible.

          In some parts, the local humans were consider fauna rather than members of our own species, so it's entirely possible.

      The "carnivores taste bad" trope is a meme. Pumas are highly valued for their meat in lower Appalachia, it tastes great. Pigs and most fish, not to mention chickens, will eat literally anything they can catch that's small enough to fit in their mouths. Even cows will eat bird nests/chicks if they can get to them, and being chewed on by deer is one of the ways rescue teams figure out how long your corpse has been in the woods.

        Opportunistic feeding doesn't make them carnivores, anon, and fish are excluded for obvious reasons. I'd like to try puma, but I suspect that like many delicacies it's making a virtue of a necessity: extra meat + it's rare because there's not enough of it to go round = it must be great.

        Probably a good way to tell which carnivores might taste good or bad rather than just being inefficient to farm would be to look at what the super rich have historically eaten, since they weren't usually shy about eating rare and exotic animals.

      Picrelated evolved on a completely different earth. Back then the oxygen content of the atmosphere was around twice that of today and there was much higher humidity. These things can't live on today's earth. They'll have to be raised in special pressurized tanks, which will raise their price astronomically.

    Neanderthal meat. I wonder where do we draw the line ethically, to eat one another in the evolutionary timeline.

    There was a Chinese paleontologist who ate part of a frozen mammoth found in Siberia.

      If the Russians are successful at reintroducing Wooly Mammoths, maybe someday we will be able to get giant steaks from them.

      I'd avoid anything in the modern Primate family.

    not extinct, but they nearly went extinct because they're supposedly hands down the most delicious meat to ever exist.
