Re: new dinosaurs and 16 Foot Man Eating Croc Caught In Uganda (joke)
Having eaten Cajun grilled Alligator tail, I found the consistancy to be
similar to sauted mushrooms, only a bit chewier. Taste, well.. - it was
blackened, with Cajun spioces, and reminiscent of chicken.

I hear it taste like chicken.
Depends upon how the croc was reared. I have it on good authority that the
flesh of wild crocs taste more like fish, because fish make up a large part
of the croc's diet. (Or, in the case of crocs in the Top End of Australia,
fish and British tourists.) On the other hand, crocs reared in captivity
tend to taste more like chicken, because they are typically fed almost
entirely on chickens (dead ones).
In any case, you can't go wrong with Dan's recipe....
No - I believe he ate it flame-grilled on a sweet potato mash with a
plum, sweet corn and red onion salsa.
Makes me drool just thinking about it.
