Hacking turtles heads while it pokes out of the shell is bloody morbid and no fun and too much work.

I found out it is easier to cook the turtles alive like crabs.

They don't struggle, their nature is to hole up in their shell.

Live crabs big and small I've eaten raw and alive.
Cooking them in their shells is pretty grim. I find it's so much more humane to just stuff raw lobsters into the freezer so that they go into suspended animation, then killing them afterwards does not give them any pain. By contrast, boiling them alive in water is just cruel.

Now here is GS  living a true paleo life - feeding his children with the work which bloodied his own hands. 

I personally don't believe that a city-gymnasium yuppie has the standing to criticize GS. But that's just me.

I"'ve eaten wild coconut crabs which we hunted on a tiny islet off the coast of Samal Island all the way down south; the beachfront of the latter (by the way) is turning into a real-estate operation to skim the money from cityfolk.   And more power to the islanders for skinning the cityfolk.   However comma, the "Island Garden City of Samal" won't be that forever now.

Your thoughts? Good luck to anyone recreating that diet. I thought it was important as it may add some weight to the idea of eating a varied diet not just meat and fat.


i know some people cultivate crocodile which is very popular meat.
bugs or country chickens

    I wonder if crocodile tastes like alligator. I haven't tried either. Have you?  I know some people who cultivate that, but with their morals they probably feed them grains and cooked chicken brains or whatever they can get away with. What does turtle taste like? I suppose hippo is like the best fatty pork.

I had alligator when younger but it was cooked. It was lean and mildly earthy/swampy tasting.

    I bet raw it would taste great.  Swampy cooked taste doesn't sound too enjoyable.  I guess people season it well when cooked, maybe Creole.  Do you know if there's a fatty part of their body or if the quality of the little cholesterol their body has makes up for the leanness?

There is a show where these guys survive in the wild. One guy goes bare footed, the other guy used to be in the military.

Anyway, they had alligator cooked, one said it taste like pork. Looked fatty.

    Ok, so there are fatty and lean parts, or something like that.  Have you tried pork?  Some say it would taste like human, or human like it, but they were likely vegans who I heard.  Pork is smelly to me, not such a good smelly, but it digests well and makes me feel healthy.

    Oh, I really want to try that too.  I could have gotten pasture fed frozen boar, but I don't go for frozen.  I visited someone with a baby boar.  It was the first animal and only ever that ran away from me.
