It's been 43 years since I've eaten iguana, but the one I shot back
then did taste good!

> Ever heard of "nighttime spinach"? It's not a vegetable. It's an African term for poached meat.
> The wildlife trade-monitoring network Traffic has studied how the explosion of refugee camps in Tanzania has affected wildlife. Because many refugee camps were hastily constructed, they went up next to wildlife preserves. The World Food Program does not offer meat as part of its relief supplies, so refugees poached wildlife in the animal preserves next door. As a result, some animal herds dropped 60% to 90%.
> There are more google hits for "bushmeat" as one word than two.  It means eating wild animals.  Deer hunters eat bushmeat.  Today's paper talked about iguana, an invasive pest and delicious too!
