No, Frog, this isn’t a joke. In Central America, those with green scales are called iguanas, and those with the brown scales and tastier meat—the ones people prefer to eat—are called garrobos. The meat tastes like chicken but is a little tougher and has less fat. In this area, the meat is a delicacy, a cure-all and an aphrodisiac. They are a traditional food, and people eat them when they are ill. They are like a total energy vitamin. I know that they are bred on farms in El Salvador, shrink-wrapped and then shipped frozen in cardboard boxes lined with plastic foam.
I know iguana meat is available in Costa Rica, If I am able to spend some time in Belize, I just thought I would ask about their availability. I prefer not to eat the frozen meat, I like it fresh.
The Gibnut sounds interesting, too. I saw a stuffed roast leg of Gibnut advertised at a mainland Belize restaurant, just don’t remember the place.
I did have dog meat in China.
