no..

Joe, you are not even close to being correct. Not ALL living animals are safe to eat. There are poisonous bugs, frogs, even odd mammals. That's really not something you should tell people.

really?
by: Joshua

you might want to add that not all PARTS of all animals are edible... and in fact many animals, while perhaps edible, aren't worth the effort, either bc of the energy and danger inherant in obtaining them, or bc they are a source of negligible protein and or vitamins and minerals. I certainly agree that eating 'bugs' can be a good way to survive, since most are small but very high in protein, however, there are many species of insects/arthropods/bugs that are in part or in whole poisonous/toxic/bad for you.

Safe to eat
by: Joe

I was learned in the military that eating insects are an important survival skill when trapped in enemy territory. There are poisonous plants but all living animals are safe to eat. Even I admit it?s not always delicious.
