frog
The French love frog's legs, but it's hard for some of us to get past the eerie resemblance between a frog's anatomy and our own.

goat
Goat meat is widely consumed in North Africa and the Middle East, but many Americans have never tasted it. It's quite lean, and if cooked correctly, it can be surprisingly good. As with sheep, the best meat comes from a young animal, or a baby goat = kid = capretto = cabrito. Meat from older goats is tougher, like mutton.
