    It depends on the snake. I've had two, rattlesnake and rat snake. They tasted much the same but mine weren't dry, nor undercooked. A bit gamey, yes, and a smell like wet moss, but not awful. Yup, everything tastes like chicken, it seems. You could live on it if you had to since the prey is inevitably a vegetarian or omnivore, so you're getting everything your body requires. -Rod-

    The one time I had snake, it did indeed taste like chicken. Perhaps a little 'meatier'.

    "Gamey" implies a richer, earthier taste. Chicken is about the least gamey meat there is, but dark chicken meat is a tad gamier than white meat. Turkey is gamier than chicken. In the USA, lamb is likely the most commonly eaten meat that could be described as gamey. Some people like it, some don't.

    Goat, venison, rabbit, and elk are less commonly eaten meats that are definitely gamey.

    Goat is very popular outside the US, but not so much in the US itself. Too bad, because goat meat is pretty damn good.

    Rattley snake tastes like greasy chicken. Hardly worth the effort to clean them.

    Snake is tasteless with a rubber on. Just like V.I.P. Vinny says...rip the plastic off for full flavour! (The meat tastes like chicken but the juice is creamy & zesty garlic.):yum:

    wild/feral hog or as they're called in the Southwest-Javelina.
    it depends on what they're eating & the season. anything over about 100 lbs gets pretty strong,especially the males.
