Okay, what are some weird things that you have eaten? I've gone down that road of "anything with four legs that isn't the table or commonly kept as a pet" (exempting guinea pig, which was served to me by a friend from Bolivia. Wasn't bad, but I wouldn't go out of my way to have it again. Not big on eating rodents in the first place.) I think that we humans have done a pretty fair job of figuring out which other critters are good to eat and reasonably obtainable. Sure, there's stuff that looks good but isn't readily available in my part of the world that pushes the "available but too expensive" button like sturgeon, lobster, puffin, grouper. sea bass, etc. I've eaten tiger shark based on the concept that if the situation were reversed... And frankly, I can't tell the difference of one species of shark from another and it isn't really good enough to bother with. I'll eat if served to me, but if I'm ordering from a menu with other seafood choices, shark is not what's for dinner. Hippopotamus steak and someone else is picking up the tab? Sure, why not. Overly marbled to my taste and way too expensive to go that route again, but like I said, I wasn't the one paying for it. Rattlesnake and gator: Forget the "just like chicken" crap unless you like your chicken thoroughly dried out and boney as hell. Edible, but just barely... So whatcha got?
